Spain March 2013

Funky Wheels for an airy, funky car. Will this image become a common sight?

Crisis Edition - Chapter One

With a global car market drop in Spain of 14%, the niche EV market suffered even more, with sales dropping 75% regarding last year. The surprising exception to this trend was the Mitsubishi I-Miev, selling 57 units in Q1, more than it did in the whole 2012 (31 units). With 46 of those 51 units being sold in March, something tells me that there might be a fleet deal behind these good numbers...

The other model to have significant sales in this horrible Quarter was the Renault Twizy with 39 sales, itself down 60% regarding last years performance. In third was the Nissan Leaf with...7 units sold.
