|Volvo won the EV Best Seller title in Belgium|
Photo-Finish Win Edition
Thanks to the valuable contribution of our reader Piet Roobrouck, we have more exclusive data on the EV market in Belgium, allowing a full year ranking.
824 plug-ins were sold, with an EV Share of 0,17%, far from the numbers of their northern neighbors, but respectable numbers nevertheless.
In a fragmented market, where the leader had just 19% share, the Volvo V60 Plug-In won the Best Seller Title with 153 units, followed very closely by the Tesla Model S, just 5 units behind.
In third was the Nissan Leaf, also close to the top (141 units, just 12 units behind Volvo).
Further down the ranking, we see two newcomers making an impact, the BMW i3 was #2 in December, with 17 units and the Panamera Plug-In landed with 6 registrations, a good start for Porsche.
Looking at the brands ranking, Renault ended at #1 with 25% share, followed by Volvo (19% share) and Tesla (18%).
Looking ahead, it will be entertaining to see the 2014 race in Belgium, with plenty of candidates at #1, not only we have the Top 3 of this year (V60, Model S and Leaf), but the BMW i3 and Outlander PHEV will also make an impact here.
