Another new market on EV Sales, this one had been a sort of Moby Dick, for years there were news of EV's in Costa Rica, but no one really knew how big was the market there, well, now we have the answer.
In a country where 92% of all generated energy in 2016 was renewable and during half of the year the country ran entirely on clean energy, EV's here are greener than in most places on Earth and the dream of a self-sufficient country, without dependency on fossil fuels, seems attainable.
All you need is to replace ICE cars for EV's...
But we digress, in 2016 there were 108 new plug-ins in Costa Rica, it might not sound a lot, but then again the local automotive market is not that big, so the EV Share sits at 0.2%, which is the highest in Latin America and higher than Italy...
The majority of sales belong to the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, followed by two BMW's: The i3 in Second and the X5 PHEV in Third.
BMW seems to be betting on this market, with a four model lineup, which seems to confirm that BMW is for real interested in selling their plug-ins around the Globe.
So...Nissan and Renault, what are you waiting for to market the Leaf and Zoe here?
