Italy January 2017





The French hatch quietly takes over Italy

Renault Zoe Starts in the Lead

Last month the Italian EV market surged 111% YoY, to 388 units, its best result in almost two years, with the EV share jumping to 0,23%.

While growth is always good, especially in a stagnant market like this one, most of it comes from PHEVs, which are growing 200%, becoming for the first time the majority of sales.

Looking at the models ranking, the first leader of the year was the Renault Zoe, now benefiting from the ZE40 kick, with 64 registrations, followed by another small BEV with a battery upgrade, the BMW i3, and Third we have the veteran Citröen C-Zero, with a surprising 47 registrations, no doubt connected to a fleet deal (Car Sharing?).

Below in the ranking, the #4 Mercedes GLC350e was the best selling plug-in hybrid, with 46 units, a great start for the Mercedes SUV, which goes in line with the current trends in Europe.

A mention to the Tesla Model X, delivering a record 11 units, outrunning its Model S sibling for the first time.

Looking at the manufacturers ranking, BMW is in the lead, with 27% Share, followed by Renault (15%), and Mercedes (11%). It seems the Three Pointed Star is finally going all in, will we see it run for the leadership?
