Portugal September 2015



Outlander PHEV New #1 Edition

EV Sales are rising fast in Portugal, with 99 units sold last month (Up 350% YoY!), and with YTD sales now at 803 units, the EV Share jumped again to a record 0,58%. With the projected final numbers of the year at around 1.100 units, plug-ins will sell more this year than all the previous years combined!

With such a high level of sales the ranking is bound to have several changes, the most important of them being the Mitsu Outlander PHEV reaching #1 both in the monthly ranking (For the fourth time in a row, by the way...) and also in the YTD chart, signaling the first time that a PHEV ever reaches such heights in Portugal.

A curious fact, considering the diferente EV history(1) that the neighboring Spain has, is that not only the japanese SUV also reached #1 in spanish lands last month, but currently both countries share the same top 4 positions (Outlander - Leaf - i3 - Zoe).

Looking at other changes, the VW Golf GTE climbed one position to #7, the Renault Kangoo ZE got its mojo back, jumping to #9, enabling it to recover the LCV Best seller title, but the Nissan e-NV200 / Evalia twins remain close, so this should be a thrilling race to the end.

The Audi A3 e-Tron was down to #13, while below it the Porsche Cayenne Plug-In climbed two positions to #15.

In the manufacturers ranking, Mitsubishi (25% Share) kicked out Nissan (20%) from the leadership, enabling the japanese carmaker to reach #1 for the first time ever, followed by Renault (18) and BMW (14%).

  1. Some difficulties to see the numbers of some competitors like between the figure of 2 sales between Renault Twizy and Peugoet Ion, or the figure of 2 sales between Tesla Model S and Nissan-eNV2000. So between the 5th and13th competitors the chart it's not fairly aligned. Can you fix that please? Thanks.
