Best Selling EVs by segment

A-segment cars (City cars) - Chery QQ3 EV

Some 5.000 QQ3 EVs were sold in 2013, earning it a #11 overall and slightly ahead of the all-time best seller (Mitsu I-Miev). Last year winner, the Renault Twizy ended just in #4 (#14 overall), some 2.000 units behind.

B-segment cars (Subcompact cars) - Renault Zoe

The french hatch has got it covered (8.869 units sold, #6 overall) because it doesn't have any real competition, but the BMW i3 will be hard to beat in 2014.

C-segment cars (Compact cars) - Nissan Leaf

In the most representative segment of the EV market (The top three best-selling plug-ins are compact cars), the Nissan Leaf wins head and shoulders above the competition, beating last year winner, the Chevy Volt.

D-segment cars (Midsize cars) - Volvo V60 Plug-in

The V60 Plug-in has beaten the Fusion Energi as the best-selling D-segment car in what has been an exciting race between the two.

E/F-segment cars (Fullsize cars) - Tesla Model S

Tesla wins this hands down, it ended #4 overall with some 22.000 units sold, while the two other competitors (Porsche Panamera Plug-in and Fisker Karma) sold a few hundred...

SUVs - Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The only SUV in the Top 20, it ended in #5 overall with 18.000 units,  despite production problems in the spring. Mitsubishi can't make enough of these cars while others (Volvo, Tesla, etc) are on their way to also have a piece of the (giant) pie.

Pick-up Trucks - Mitsubishi Minicab Miev Truck

600 units were enough for Mitsu to win this, as this was an empty bowl, to give an idea on how empty this segment is, the all-time best selling plug-in pick-up is still the jurassic Ford Ranger EV.

MPVs - Ford C-Max Energi

The C-Max wins this easily, with only the BYD e6 making some kind of competition to it.

Sports cars - Tesla Roadster

Two dozens of units sold in the beginning of the year were enough for Tesla to win this, but in 2014 things will be more interesting, with Porsche, McLaren and above all, BMW, as candidates for this title.
