Tipping Point? Edition
August is usually a low sales month in this highly seasonal market, but ev's just kept on selling, 37 were sold in Ireland last month, representing a record 0,75% share for plug-ins, and putting the YTD EV Share at 0,24%, three times higher than last year, could this be the tipping point for electric cars in Ireland, when people begin to see plug-ins as a valid option for transportation?
Nissan was for a long time the electric car evangelist in the Emerald Island, insisting in selling the Leaf here, despite symbolic sales, now it seems that it's harvesting those ceeds, with 174 units sold, 22 of them in August. The Mitsu Outlander PHEV is helping on this sudden growth, it was again #2, with 6 units, showing Plug-In Hybrids can be an interesting alternative in Ireland.
