New Leaf reaches the Podium
Sales grew moderately in Iceland (+38%) last month, but nevertheless, with the 2018 PEV market share now standing at 15%, the second largest in the World, one can't really complain, as 38% growth over 10-15% share is far more significant than the same rate over a base of 1-1.5%.
Looking at the models ranking, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV continues as strong as ever, having already registered 106 units in June, its best result since June.
In the remaining podium positions, there was a significant change, with the new Nissan Leaf removing the Volvo XC60 PHEV from the Bronze position, with the Japanese hatchback confirming its status as the best selling BEV, and could even steal the runner-up status from the larger Swedish SUV.
Elsewhere, the Kia Optima PHEV is the new #8, while the Hyundai Ioniq Electric surpassed the Renault Zoe, becoming the new #14 (#3 in the BEV ranking).
