|A curious fact, the Renault Twizy is the most common EV in Germany|
"Calm Before the Storm?" Edition
At 440 units sold in September, this was the third monthly drop for the german market, this can be caused by consumers waiting for the upcoming releases from VW and BMW.
Speaking of BMW, the i3 is still in demonstration-units-mode, selling a paltry 51 units this month, leaving it still in an discrete #7 on the YTD chart.
Up front, the Smart Fortwo ED has a bang up month (142 units) and resists the attacks of younger players, while behind it the podium fight is tight between the Nissan Leaf, up to second place with 721 units, the Renault Twizy (Dropping to third), with 717 units and the #4 Renault Zoe at 708 cars sold.
The Opel Ampera recovers one position to #5 but it's far from last years performance, a year ago the sales counter was on 707 units, now it's still to reach 300...
Tesla was #6 in September (42 units) ant it's still #9 YTD, a demonstration that this will be one of the markets for the american brand to break through.
On the manufacturers ranking, Renault is number one with 34% share, followed by Smart (28%) and Nissan (17%).
