Model S Jumps to the Leadership Edition
Only BEV data is available, but nevertheless, the numbers remain comparable with last year (139 units last May vs 143 in 2014, with BEV and PHEV combined), so this is another market in good health, with EV Share remaining around 0,5%.
Looking at the models ranking, the Tesla Model S jumps to the leadership for the first time this year, with last year leader Renault Zoe (33 units, best result of the year), also climbing to #2, tied with the Nissan Leaf, which had its worst performance in seven months by selling just 8 units.
The e-Golf also had the worst result of the year (8 sales), dropping one position to #4.
Great performance for the Kia Soul EV, selling 13 units, a personal best and the first time that the korean car reaches a monthly podium seat, allowing it to rise one position to #6 YTD, will we see it progress even further? Let's hope the Austrian Kia importer helps...
Looking at the manufacturers ranking, the top spots continue pretty balanced, with a neck-to-neck race between Tesla (20%), Renault (19%), Nissan (18%) and VW (18%).
