"I am i8" Edition
After Year Zero in 2014, the South African EV Market is proving to have an encouraging start despite having only three models available, the Nissan Leaf and the BMW i offerings.
160 units were sold this year, already surpassing last year result (140 units), with the EV Share doubling from 0,02% to 0,04%.
The models ranking has a surprising #1, as the BMW i8 is leader since June, surpassing its smaller brother, the i3, this is the first time that a EV Market covered by EVS has the i8 as YTD #1.
The other plug-in offering, the Nissan Leaf, is less successfull in SA, selling only 27 units this year. Lack of Premium appeal?
