The rest of the electric cars are far behind the japanese hatchback, which grabs for himself a gigantic 74% share of the market, but nevertheless there are some points to be noticed, the Prius Plug-In is up two spots to #3 and despite production constraints, the Volvo V60 Plug-In shows up in a brilliant in #4, right ahead of the Kangoo ZE, another model improving its position in the ranking.
