|The i8 is shining...|
Renault Strikes Back
Having been leader in the past in Switzerland (Twizy was #1 in 2012 and the Zoe in 2013), Renault was outshined this year by BMW and Tesla, but October was payback time, with the Zoe selling 32 units and winning its first Best-Seller title since last January, while the Twizy was #3, with 16 units.
In the rest of the ranking, the Nissan Leaf made a year best performance, selling 14 units, while the BMW i8 continues to impress, selling a record 11 units, securing it a #5 position in October, alongside the Tesla Model S(!). With the Bimmer sports car improving every passing month, will we see it win a podium seat sometime soon? Or even outsell its smaller brother i3?
Looking at the global Swiss EV Market, the EV Share is at 0,59% (vs 0,44% in '13), and it's safe to say that it will end the year in record territory, with the 1.409 units sold this year already beating the 1.368 units of 2013 and really close from the record 1.463 units sold in 2012.
