|The first 23 units of the BMW i3 landed this July|
Leaf Fights Back Edition
After the 228 units sold by the Renault Zoe in June, in July the Nissan Leaf responded with a new personal sales record, scoring 230 sales, a second monthly #1, and also closing in to its french cousin on the YTD chart.
Unlike other markets, this one kept on improving sales in July, registering 633 units sold, a year best, thanks to the Zoe/Leaf sales competition and the landing of the homeboy BMW i3, which will surely join the previous two on the monthly fight for #1. A side effect of this sales growth is the EV Share rising to 0,195%, now just 0,003% behind last years score of 0,198%.
On a market predominantly BEV, the only Plug-In Hybrid to score significant sales is the Opel Ampera, this year down to #6 and 7% share, when in 2012 it was #2 and had 14% share.
Finally, in the brands ranking, Renault (35%) recovered the #1 spot from Smart (32%), with Nissan a distant third placed, with 15% share.
