World Top 10 June 2013 (Updated)

A Sports Car? No, it's just the Opel Ampera
Models - Volt wakes up 

Chevrolet Volt sales boomed (3.056 units), allowing it to recover the second place, dropping the Model S to third.
The Prius Plug-In is a comfortable fourth but in fifth place there's a bullish Renault Zoe that climbed one position this month and in #8 the Kangoo ZE is just 17 units behind the seventh Mitsu I-Miev, so a close fight is to be expected in July between these two.

The lowest place in the ranking belongs this month to the Chery QQ3 EV, but the other two competitors remain close with the  #11 Renault Twizy (1.647) 153 units behind and the #12 Ford Fusion Energi (1.585) 215 units behind, so it will be a close fight for #10 in July...

Despite Volt's sales rebound, plug-in hybrids continue to lose share, they're now at 37%, one percent less than last month.

Manufacturers - Renault climbs two positions

In the Manufacturers ranking, Nissan increases its leadership, adding another percent share to 25%, it's now followed by Chevrolet at 15% and a surprising Renault, with 13%.

Working on its Euro-landing, Tesla drops two positions to fourth, with 13% and the still hampered battery issued Mitsubishi drops another position to #5, losing more 2% share to 11%.

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, Chery switches positions with BYD, with Chery now #8. Smart closes the table in #10 but it's now pressuring BYD.

Questions for July

Is it possible for the Kangoo ZE and C-Max Energi to pass by the Mitsu I-Miev? 

Who will get this time the tenth place in the models ranking?

Can Renault hold on to #3?

Will Mitsubishi lose the #5 position to Toyota?

Can Chery hold on to #8?

Can Smart pass BYD and reach #9?
