|The fight between these two promises to be long|
Another chapter in the fight between the Zoe and the Leaf, this time with the Leaf winning 715 vs 700 in July, but still far from its french cousin in the YTD chart. The following positions remain the same, although the #5 Twizy is closing in on the #4 Prius Plug-In.
Further down the ranking, the Chevy Volt climbs one position to #12, changing positions with Bolloré Blue Car, which has being losing steam this year.
Comparing positions between now and the end of last year, there are lots of changes, the Zoe shoots up from nowhere (#21) to the leadership, the Twizy drops from the top spot to #5, the Smart Fortwo ED climbs 6 positions to #6, the Volvo V60 climbs from #22 to #8, and three french models drop significantly: the C-Zero goes from #6 to #10, the Fluence from #10 to #15 and the Peugeot iOn from #7 to...#14, winning the title of largest drop in the Euro ranking.
A special comment for the Opel Ampera stumble from #2 to #7, losing on the way the PHEV best seller title for the Prius Plug-In, GM announced this month a 5.000$ price cut on the US Chevy Volt, we can only expect that in the next weeks or months the european arm of The General does the same, because if it doesn't, the sales slide in their main markets, like Holland or Germany, will become irreversible as newer, better plug-ins reach their shores.
