Pedal to the Metal
The big news was that from the 265 units registered last month, 60% of them were Teslas(!), with the american car already sending shock waves in the (Small) Premium sector of the Danish Auto market, not only the 160 units were enough to make it the Best Selling car of its class (42 units ahead of the Audi A6), but in YTD sales it is only behind the same Audi, and it's not that far away, being only 54 units behind...The German Premiums must be taking notes by now...
Looking at the models ranking, the Tesla Model S made a smashing return to the leadership, changing positions with the surprisingly slow selling Nissan e-NV200 / Evalia, which registered only 8 vans, all of the commercial variety.
The Nissan Leaf continues in #3, but the BMW i3 (Only 2 BEV vs 16 Rex) and Renault Zoe took the chance to get a little bit closer, with the french car returning its best result of the year (29 units) and reaching the german to a tie in #4.
The current Rookie Of The Year, Mercedes C350e, continues to impress, rising to #8 and surpassing the Outlander PHEV in the Best Selling PHEV competition.
Speaking of PHEV's, this is one of the strongholds of pure electric cars, with 97% of the market, but even here plug-in hybrids are starting to make a dent, if the 3% share they currently own sounds small, it is still a significant increase from the 2% of last year and 1% in 2013...
