Models - Springtime Record
The top position went for the Leaf, with 6.484 units, its best performance since last September.
In #2 we have the Tesla Model S, with a record 5.562 sales, followed in Third by the Mitsu Outlander PHEV, with 5.196 sales, its best result in 15 months, while in #4 we have the BYD Qin (2.476 units, new personal record), leaving the rest of the pack behind and now aiming for the Top 3.
Moving on, the YTD ranking shows one major change, with the Model S from Tesla displacing the Outlander PHEV from the Second Spot, expect the japanese model to fight back next month, this is a fierce race that has been going on since last year, so expect a lot of action coming from these two in the near future.
A final reference to the bottom places in the table, the Chevrolet Volt family climbed to #8 and the Golf GTE is now #10 (Only 422 sales this month), but the really interesting thing is that behind it, there is a lot of pretenders to the last place in the ranking, as there are three cars in a 100 units-ish proximity of the german car: The #11 BAIC E-Series EV (1.950 units, 1.431 in March), the #12 Zotye E20 (1.927 units, 1.151 last month) and the #13 Ford Fusion Energi (1.891 / 850), all are really close to Volkswagen's car and all of them are outperforming it, so i wouldn't be surprised if they all surpassed it next month.

Manufacturers - Tesla Month
Tesla recovered and it is now at its usual place (Third), while BYD continues ahead of Volkswagen (Das Auto went down two positions), which now has BMW on its heels, looking to displace it from Fifth.
There is a close fight between Ford and Renault for #7, with the french manufacturer running ahead (for now), while the two last spots have been changing hands frequently, it's now time for the chinese Zotye to debut the Top 10, it is #9, relegating Chevrolet to #10 and ditching Toyota out of the Top 10, for the first since 2012!.
