|Renault Twizy in the Alps|
Below Average Edition
After several months selling in the hundreds, the Austrian EV market sold only 94 plug-ins last September, still a 12 units improvement over the same month last year, but nevertheless it dragged down the EV Share to 0,51%, down 0,02% share.
But there is another good news to report, the total sales this year (1.202) is now in record territory, with still three months to improve the score, not bad, eh?
Looking at the models ranking,the bavarian i3 continues to hold the leadership, being the best seller for the third month in a row, while the previous the leader Renault Zoe (15 units) had its slowest selling month this year, apparently happy with its current runner-up position.
Speaking of runner-ups, last year #2, the Renault Twizy, rose to #8, changing positions with the Outlander PHEV, which isn't the best selling plug-in hybrid here, that credit goes to the #6 Volvo V60 Plug-In. Is Mitsu austrian importer under-performing or are austrians not that into the japanese SUV?
Looking into the manufacturers ranking, BMW (27% share) opened slightly the gap to 2% regarding Renault (Up 1% to 25% share), while Volkswagen in #3 (15%) is waiting desperately for the e-Golf to step up sales.
