Models - Energi Brothers on the Attack
In the first four positions the #4 Prius Plug-In had record month and it's now less than 200 units behind Tesla's Model S, which should bounce back nest month.
Behind them a lot is going on: The Outlander PHEV, helped by its Euro landing, is in comeback mode and starting to look at Zoe's fifth place with envious eyes. Also ambitious is the #7 Ford C-Max Energi, improving every month (#4 this month), distancing itself from the Kangoo ZE and now searching for the two above, while its stablemate Fusion Energi climbs to #9. The Mitsu I-Miev, which has been losing steam lately, also loses the tenth place to a strong QQ3 EV from Chery.
Still not absent from this ranking, the Volvo V60 Plug-In achieved another brilliant #6 position in October. November might see it get to the Top 10...

Manufacturers - Chery in #8
