Sprintime Records - The Beauty and the Beast Edition
After two slow selling months, the local EV market sold a record 483 units last month, almost three times of what it did in the same month of last year, with the EV Share passing for the first time the 1%, now at 1.39.
Looking at the models ranking, we can see the two main culprits for this outstanding performance, the Monthly Best Seller was the Tesla Model S sport-sedan-sexy-thingy, which shattered the previous monthly record for a single model (115 units last December, also by the Model S), by selling an amazing 180 units.
But this performance was almost outrun by Nissan's rising star, the Nissan e-NV200 workhorse sold a mesmerizing 172 units, with most of them (139, to be exact) being passenger versions! (Aka Evalia).
The Nissan Leaf also had a memorable performance, selling 73 units, its best result of the year, propelling it to #3, up four positions, making a 1-3 podium for Nissan, leading the manufacturers ranking (44%), ahead of Tesla (34%) and BMW (7%).
A final remark for the LCV sector, besides the stratospheric performance of the e-NV200, the Renault Kangoo ZE was now outrunned (4 vs 2 units) by the Citroen Berlingo EV!
Renault really needs to do something about it...
