|BMW i8: To arrive shortly on your dream list|
Newcomers - Austrian Edition
Great plug-in month in Austria, with 127 units registered, best sales month of the year, pulling the EV share to 0,25%, if December proves to be even better than this month, it can still reach the 0,30% hallmark of last year.
The Renault Zoe was Number One with 51 units, winning a seventh consecutive #1, doing better here than in its own home country...
But the real news are the three positions behind the french hatch: In #2 we have the Tesla Model S with 23 units sold, a bit later than other countries, but it seems that Austria was also hit by Tesla Fever, next is the Smart Fortwo ED, now with the production constraints behind, the tiny Smart is climbing positions (It's now #4 YTD and with a shot to reach #3 in December), and in fourth we have the BMW i3, another country where the Bimmer started with the right
We also assist at some surprising facts, like the zero units of the Opel Ampera (I had to double check this one, i just couldn't believe it), it seems that the price reduction still hasn't done anything to it, and the first two registrations of the Mia Electric in Austria.
Another surprising thing, that only shows how dynamic EV markets are, is that the Citröen C-Zero, #2 in '12, is now...#11, just like last years #3 (Fluence ZE), is in a much more discrete #10.
