Japan January 2013

Mitsubishi Outlander Plug In dash 

Despite being the second largest EV market in the world, it is difficult to get regular sales numbers from Japan, but here's an exclusive ranking for January's Plug-In car sales!

We can see that the duel between the Prius Plug In and the Leaf now has a small advantage for the Nissan's car, now benefiting from the improved 2013 model.

But the big news is the arrival of Mitsu's Outlander to the market, in just 16 days it got 506 sales, a whole lot more than its stable mates I-Miev and Minicab did in a complete month and about half of what the top two sold.

With this in mind, February should provide some interesting numbers...
