4.878 EV's were sold last month in Europe, 38% above the same month last year, positive numbers that prove that the EV tide is continuing to fill up.
Looking at the models ranking, February shows a pretty balanced ranking, with less than 100 units separating the surprising #2 BMW i3 (645 units) from the #5 Volvo V60 Plug-in (560 units), while the Nissan Leaf sits high above them in #1, with twice the YTD sales of their competitors.
There were some changes in the ranking, with the excellent Second Place of the i3 and the Outlander PHEV back to the podium (#3 with 633 units), preparing itself to take on the Leaf as soon as it gets enough units in stock. The Model S also rose to #4 and with the announced price cut on their way, the podium might be a obtainable goal in the future.
On the german duel, the Bimmer seems to have the upper hand, having sold twice as much as the small e-Up!, now about that e-Golf...
Further down the ranking, we see the Prius Plug-in at #12 (A year ago it was #3), but things are even worse for the Opel Ampera, down to #16 with just 32 units...
The Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid, or Panamera Plug-in, is now on radar at #16 (#13 YTD), thanks to their good performance in Belgium.
Looking at the brands ranking, Renault lost #1 for Nissan (24% share), with the french manufacturer dropping to Second Place with 14% share, followed closely by BMW (12%) and Volvo (11%).
