Sweden January 2013

Volvo V60 Plug-In Dashboard

January was a record month for Plug-In cars in Sweden with 174 units sold and possibly the first time that the EV's got more than 1% share in the general market.

The Volvo V60 Plug-In is building momentum since it was launched in November, rising now to #2, just five cars behind the Prius, so it won't be a surprise to see soon a new leader in the swedish models ranking, which would be a comeback for the home maker since the first place in 2010 of the C30 Electric, this month that goal already has been achieved as a brand, Volvo got 35% share against 33% from Toyota.

A good month too for the Nissan Leaf at 29 units, enough to pass the Renault Kangoo ZE and break into third position.

On a side note, it's strange as Renault doesn't invest more in scandinavian markets, as these are promising countries regarding EV's, maybe the french maker is waiting for the right car (Zoe) to go in, but they sure are loosing opportunities here...
