|Bio Auto, a chinese-based EV, now surfacing in the Ukraine|
Plug-in car sales sometimes appear from unexpected places, like in this case, where despite a troubled economy and a shrinking auto market, EV's are flourishing in the Ukraine, with a 400% growth YoY and close to 1% EV Share, thanks to recently approved import tax exemptions for electric cars.
231 units were sold to date this year, with the Nissan Leaf representing the bulk of units (149), pulling this market from obscurity since last year, when it won the Best Seller title by a (small) landslide.
Tesla is Second, followed closely by Renault, where the Fluence ZE is its best-seller.
Outside the Podium, the Ford Focus Electric is Fourth(!), with 11 units, a world best position for the american hatch, followed by the C-Zero from Citröen and 7 units from the little known Bio Auto automaker (Does anyone has more information on them?)
Interesting market, isn't it? (Wink, wink, VW and BMW...)
