|Mahindra intends to sell its E2O EV in Europe, and city-car loving Italy would be a nice place to start|
The Italian EV market had its best month of the year, with 189 units, pushing the EV share to 0,10%, the best score since...Last year.
On the monthly ranking, two newcomers are making themselves noticed, while the Nissan Leaf secured another #1 (The fourth of the year), in the remaining podium positions we have two new players, in #2 we find the Volvo V60 Plug-In, selling 35 units and achieving the best position ever for a PHEV here, it seems that the swedish wagon found a way to crack and succeed in the BEV-small-car-friendly Italy.
In third came the BMW i3 with 29 units, a great start for the bavarian car and surely one of the candidates for #1 next year.
The YTD chart had changes at the lower levels, with the Renault Fluence ZE losing two positions in favor of the aforementioned V60 Plug-In (Now #5) and the Citröen C-Zero, which had a strong month, selling 14 units, although "strong" can be relative, if we remember that a year ago it was #3 in the monthly chart and now those 14 cars were only enough for #6...
