Audi e-Tron shines in Israel
After a long absence, Israel is back at EVS, since then many things have happened, as this once PHEV-heavy market, the Top 5 Best Sellers of 2018 were all plugin hybrids, has become a bit more BEV-friendly, with BEV share growing from just 7% last year, to 17% (32% in September), mostly thanks to the resounding success of the Audi e-Tron, that jumped to the 3rd spot, and could climb higher in the ranking until the end of the year.
The current PEV share is at 1.4%, which is already a surprisingly good result, but the September share reached an amazing 2.7%, thanks to 471 units, the second best result ever, with the Audi SUV proving to be decisive for this great result, thanks to 129 registrations, the first time a single model reaches three-digits in a single month. A prelude of things to come?
Anyway, the current leader is still the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, followed by another Midsize SUV, the Volvo XC60 PHEV, while outside the podium, the Mercedes E300e plugin hybrid also makes an appearance.
