|Twizzies galore in Colombia|
We have a new market on EV Sales, Colombia, with 269 units sold in 2015 and 73 in the first half of this year, the market is regressing, but the numbers are still significant, with the EV share now at 0.05%.
After the first pioneering years having been divided between Mitsubishi (2011 & '12) and BYD (2013 & '14) efforts, the First Year of the Electric Car in Colombia (2015) was much due to the arrival of Renault and in particular of its Twizy city vehicle, which struck a chord in the market and registered 215 units that year, being responsible for 80% of all plug-in sales.
This year the numbers are less impressive, but the tiny Renault still holds 75% of the market, leaving some scrums to its Kangoo ZE relative (#2, with 9 units) and the other plug-in models.
Looking to the upcoming months, the Renault Zoe is expected to arrive soon, with the French brand expecting to succeed at least as much as the Twizy, while BYD has also hinted to bring some novelties here. BYD Qin EV300? It would be a welcome addition, no doubt about it.
