World Top 10 May 2013

Mitsubishi EV sales are on hold 
Models - All the same 

May left the ranking like it was last month, with the exception of the bottom place, where Renault recovered the tenth place for the Twizy.

Despite this entry in the Top 10, the french EV has two models following its small tail, with the #11 Chery QQ3 EV and the #12 Ford Fusion Energi less than 100 units behind it, so a lot can happen in June...

Pure electrics continue on the rebound, with BEV share increasing another point to 62% of the market.

Manufacturers - Mitsubishi Suffers

In the Manufacturers ranking, Nissan holds its leadership with 24% share, now followed by Tesla at 14% and Chevrolet, with 13%.

Mitsubishi has been hampered by batteries issues and drops to fourth, losing 2% share on the way to 13%.

Behind the seven major players, figures become a bit sketchy as one doesn't know for sure how the chinese brands are behaving, but taking in account confirmed numbers, BYD switches positions with Chery, with the e6 maker now #8, leaving its compatriot in #9 and Smart rounding up the table in #10.

Questions for June

Can the Volt family reach #2?

And can the Zoe reach #5?

Is it possible for the Kangoo ZE to remove the Mitsu I-Miev from the seventh place?

Who gets this time the tenth place in the models ranking?

In the manufacturers ranking, can Chevrolet reach #2?

How many more positions will Mitsubishi lose?

Can BYD hold on to #8?

  1. Answers:

    1 & 5 - A very definitive Yes;

    2 - Yes, thanks to a record sales month (1.387 units) and to the Outlander PHEV sales drought, the Zoe is now in a comfortable #5;

    3 - No, but it was close. With just 17 units separating them, July should see the Kangoo ZE switch positions with the I-Miev;

    4 - Chery QQ3 EV.

    6 - One, for Renault. Mitsu is now in fifth place and has Toyota in its the rearview mirror;

    7 - No, this time Chery got the upper hand.
