|Twizy continues to be #1 in Portugal|
Back Out of Hell Edition
In 2011 portuguese EV sales mounted to 210 units, which was more than countries like Sweden or Italy and was placing Portugal on the forefront of the EV (re)evolution, but then in 2012 fiscal incentives ended and the market plunged to 161 units when others grew exponentially.
2013 started like the year before, but then during the summer a number of fleet deals and increased private demand pushed sales up, ending the year with 224 units sold, 39% above last year and 7% above the '11 hallmark.
In the models ranking, the Renault Twizy won again the Best Selling crown, followed by the Peugeot iOn which benefited from fleet sales to reach #2, just 8 units behind the leader.
The Nissan Leaf (38 units sold) ended in Third and the Renault Fluence ZE in #4,
The BMW i3 ended in #7, but in 2014 it will be one of the main candidates at the Best Seller Title, just like the VW e-Up!
