Germany June 2013 (Updated)

Five out of Six Edition

Keeping on what it now looks a trend in the German EV market, June heralded a new leader, with the Renault Zoe scoring a record 228 units and allowing it to be the fifth monthly leader this year, after the Smart Fortwo ED (Jan), the Citröen C-Zero (Feb), the Renault Twizy (March/May) and the Nissan Leaf (Apr).

Besides this new tradition, there were other news in the German EV market, like June being the best sales month since last October, with 626 sales, allowing the EV share to recover another 0,04% to 0,18%, it's now nearer last year's share of 0,198%.

Back to the models ranking, Zoe's great result allowed it to climb two positions to #3 and now the first two (Fortwo ED and Twizy) have a bullish french hatchback on their rearview mirror. Expect for more podium changes in the future...

On the negative side of things, the Citröen C-Zero dropped two positions to #5 and now has the Opel Ampera (Again third in June) behind it, looking to recover some positions on the YTD ranking.
