Japan August 2014 (Updated)


Leaf -  6 Outlander - 2 

With 1.917 sales last month, the japanese market was down 22% regarding the same month last year,dragging down the EV Share to 0,90%, less than the 0,92% set last year.

The Leaf won again its duel with the Outlander PHEV, which has sold just 457 units last month, are buyers already waiting for the new model?

Good result for the BMW i3 in Japan, with regular three digit sales, making itself noticed on this difficult market.

Looking at the manufacturers ranking, Nissan (45%) extended their lead over Mitsubishi (40%), and it looks set to recover the Best Selling Brand title.

  2. I would have to say that your data is incomplete.

    BMW i3 is at over 400 units (Apr - Aug 2014)

  4. I think that the Japan Automobile association lists sales of Japanese made electric cars separate from imported EVs. Whenever I tried to find foreign imports, they were listed as "other" or they were in a separate table somewhere. This is true also of ICE vehicles as Japanese auto companies control 95 per cent of the Japanese auto market.

    Tesla started selling Model S in early September with 9 units. Tesla has plans to build supercharger stations all over Japan, so apparently Tesla thinks they will be able to sell a few cars in Japan.

  5. Ze, I just found the exact sales figures for the PiP by year through Sept 2014, both in the Japanese market and global. Google translate does the job pretty well, check here:http://newsroom.toyota.co.jp/jp/detail/4061096/

    I hope this will help you improve the stats for next month.
