With 8.496 units sold in June, the European EV market grew 90% regarding the same month last year, continuing the solid growth that has been experiencing throughout the year.
Looking at the models ranking, the Outlander PHEV was again the Best Seller of the month, with 1.833 units, distancing itself from the #2 Nissan Leaf (1.131 units sold).
For the first time this year, four cars sold in the thousands, with the aforementioned Outlander PHEV and Nissan Leaf being two of them, but also the Tesla Model S (1.135 units) and the Renault Zoe (1.016) did it, a special mention for the french hatch performance, since it's only the third time it reaches this kind of sales, and it had been twelve months since the last time it did (1.358 units in June '13), this brilliant performance allowed it to jump two positions in the YTD ranking to #5.
Final mention for two newcomers, the VW e-Golf is slowly climbing its way into the Top 10 and the BMW i8 sports car already appears at the bottom of this new Top 25 (5 more than before) ranking, with 60 registrations.

The Leaf and i3 differences are not too significant, but the Outlander numbers came as a surprise. Then again, there several countries (Switzerland comes to mind) don't break down sales by fuel, that's why there's a significant difference.Delete
Thanks for the links and i'll update the Europe post soon.
Jose, the AID Newsletter confirms that the number of BMW i3s sold in Europe is higher than you reported: 4,853 units. See here: http://www.eagleaid.com/AID-Newsletter-Front-Page-1414-Page-1-preview.pdfReplyDelete
Please note that AID only reports Western European sales, so particularly the Leaf seems to be underestimated. The Model S and Zoe figures are close to yours. Cheers.
I think i've found the reason for that difference, because there's no way to know the models ranking in the UK, i've made a sales estimate for it, and it seems that the i3 sales there were higher than i supposed.Delete
I've already updated the post, although not getting to the same numbers, they closer now.
