Kona EV Shines
Despite the lack of incentives, the Spanish plug-in market is growing, last month it hit 1.113 units, up 52% YoY, with the 2019 PEV Share starting at 1.1%, also thanks to the mainstream market dropping 5%.
Looking at January best sellers, the big news were the 127 registrations of the Hyundai Kona EV, the Crossover best month so far, pulling it to 3rd spot, only behind the 151 units of the #2 Nissan Leaf, and the 165 registrations of the leader Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, that performed its best result ever in Spain.
Interestingly, there is a majority of BEVs on the Top 20, with two Citroen(!) in the ranking, with the e-Berlingo showing up in #13, with 33 deliveries, while the forever-young C-Zero is #15, with 20 units, while another van-with-windows, the Nissan e-Evalia (12 units) is #19.
Jaguar Land Rover also showed up with two representatives, with the much awaited i-Pace joining the ranking in #16, while the Land Rover Range Rover Sport PHEV, besides winning the prize for longest name, started 2019 in #8, with 48 deliveries.
On the manufacturers ranking, the race started pretty balanced, with Hyundai (16%) leading, followed by Mitsubishi and Nissan, both with 15% share, with Mitsu leading by a thread (165 units vs 163).
