Second Win for the Outlander PHEV
An amazing 28.000 plug-ins were sold in 2015, doubling the numbers of last year, with the EV Share now north of 1%, almost doubling the result of last year (1.07% vs 0.56%).
Looking at the models ranking, the Mitsu Outlander PHEV ended miles away from Second Place Nissan Leaf, itself also comfortably ahead of the Third Placed, the BMW i3, while the Renault Zoe ended in #4, resulting in 2015 repeating last year Top 4 positions.
In the manufacturers ranking, Mitsubishi (41% Share) won its second consecutive manufacturers title, followed by Nissan (21%) and BMW (11%).
Below, you will find the 2015 Trophy Room:
Best Selling Small Car: BMW i3, 2.213 units. After another close run with the Renault Zoe, the Bimmer hot hatch managed to win once again the Best Selling Small Car title, with their sales growing 59% YoY;
Rookie Of The Year: Volkswagen Golf GTE, 1.500 units. As expected, the german model had a warm welcome in hot hatch land, shooting to #5 in the Final Ranking.
In 2016 the VW GTE relatives (Golf & Passat) will try to dent the front-runners domination, while at the same time luxury SUV's will be on the high. As for sales predictions, i would say that growth will continue, albeit on a more moderate pace, so my guess will be some 40.000 units.
