|A stylish newcomer to the Plug-In market: The Ford Fusion Energi|
With 5.419 units sold in February, the EV market in the US-of-A saw a 18% increase over last month and, most importantly, a 200% plus increase year-on-year, showing a consistent growth that outshines the efforts
All models contributed for this sales growth, with one of them (Mitsubishi i) even registering a record month at 337 units.
The Chevrolet Volt recovered the number one place but with Tesla selling consistently over 1.200 units a month, it will have to return to October levels (Over 2.000 sales) if it wants to keep comfortably the best selling crown.
Behind the front two, the Prius Plug In seems to be losing steam and is now threatened by the Nissan Leaf, that is starting to be benefited by the Tennessee production and with it expects to increase sales in the coming months.
In fifth comes the Mitsu i-Miev, relegating to a surprising #6 the C-Max Energi, struggling for now with a small inventory.
Finally, we welcome the Fusion Energi with a respectable 119 sales in its debut month.
