|In '13 the Leaf was #1, will the Model S be the next Best Seller?|
Breaking The Waves Edition
In a sea of small and compact cars, the Tesla Model S is making its way into success, December was the second month (September was the first) where it was the Best Selling EV in Denmark and it ended in #2 on the YTD ranking, being for the moment the most dangerous adversary of this year's Best Selling EV, the Nissan Leaf, which has sold 212 cars, a new record for yearly sales for a single model (in '12 the Fluence ZE had sold 198 units), and despite the Danish plug-in market ending with the same EV share as in 2012 (0,29%), there was a new sales record, with the 522 electric cars being sold there.
Third YTD was the Renault Zoe, with 92 units and 18% share.
Looking ahead for 2014, the Nissan Leaf will have a complicated life to renew the top spot, not only the Model S is already proving to be tough competition, but the VW e-Up! and the BMW i3 have also big ambitions, it is reported that the i3 already has a waiting list of several hundred cars...
All these new cars should pull the numbers up, i'm guessing that the 1.000 mark is possible if all goes well.
