Mercedes GLC350e the new darling of the Belgian market


February continued with the positive trend in Belgium, with 753 passenger cars wearing a Plug being registered, up 17% YoY, pulling the EV Share at 1.8%.

SUV's continue to be the Trend du Jour, with Belgians confirming their love for German brands and SUV's, the Mercedes GLC350e won for the first time in February the Best Seller of the Month award, with a record 117 units, while climbing to Second Place in the YTD ranking, thus displacing the BMW X5 to the lowest position in the podium.

But is wasn't all bad news for the Bavarian automaker, both the BMW i3 and 225xe Atc. Tourer climbed one position, at the expense of the Audi Q7 e-Tron (26 sales, worst performance in six months), that dropped four positions to #9.

Looking elsewhere, the ageing Nissan Leaf registered 45 units, its best result in nine months, which proves once again the resilience on the Japanese model, allowing it to climb to positions, to #10, last month.

In the manufacturers ranking, last year leader BMW is firm in the leadership, with 37% (Up 3%), while Mercedes (18%, up 2%) benefited from the popularity of its midsize SUV and surpassed Volvo (16%, down 4%) in the race for Second Place.
