|Mitsu wished it had more of these to sell|
Models - Outlander #1
New record sales, with 22.717 plug-ins sold in November and with total sales mounting to 176.671, if December continues to register record sales, we can still hope to arrive at the 200.000 units level, a nice number to end the year.
In the Third Position race, the Prius Plug-In went back to more usual numbers (1.698 units), allowing for a strong Model S (2.383 sales) to bounce back and earn a more comfortable distance from Toyota's eco-star.
Behind these, we see a position change between a weak (Just 637 units) Renault Zoe and the rising star Outlander PHEV, now #5 and presenting credentials to fight for #1 next year.
Finally, the Volvo V60 Plug-In achieved another brilliant #6 position in November, allowing it to climb at #10, with the #8 position on its "To Do" list for December...

Manufacturers - Mitsubishi Beats Sales Record
In the Manufacturers ranking, Mitsubishi benefits from the unexpected demand for Outlander's across the World to score a new record (4.788 units) sales in a single month, allowing it to climb at #5, at the expense of Renault, with hopes of reaching #3 next month.
Further down the ranking we see Volvo reaching at #8 thanks to yet another record month (1.380 sales), while Smart secures its #10 also with a personal best score (618 units).
