World All Time Top 10 (Updated to 15 Feb 2013)

Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf: The duel continues

With 2013 data is coming in at a slow pace, i took the time to see how it measures the all time ranking for EV's and the Top 10 models are a diversified bunch: From old timers dating back to the first electric era, like the Peugeot 106 Electrique at #7, to shiny new cars like the Tesla Model S already at #9 and looking for better standings in the next months, or from the usual electric ambassadors (Volt, Leaf, Prius...) to unsung heroes like the tiny indian Reva. 

There's also space for some french quirks, like the quadricycle Renault Twizy and the LCV Kangoo ZE at fifth and sixth places, and the surprise of seeing the Smart Fortwo ED at #10.

Just outside this All Time Top 10, but now a regular presence in the monthly Top 5,  it won't be long for the Ford C-Max Energi to reach it, making it the third Plug In Hybrid in the ranking.
