While we wait for China numbers, the most anticipated market of the season (Will Kandi and BYD continue to grow indefinitely, how will Tesla and Zotye behave, will there be any new model arriving?), i've decided to share with you some of EV Sales statistics, which show a stable growth in views since Day One, for which i am thankful to all of you guys (And girls), and it gives me the drive to continue with this project, 265.000 views later.
Fig. 1 - Number of views since the beginning
As you can see, there are a couple of surprises here, if France and the US doesn't surprise anybody for being on top, Germany is a rather surprising Number Three, just like Japan in #4, i don't have much feedback coming from those parts, but it's nice to see that EVS has a following there (By the way, does anyone there knows the sales numbers of the Accord Plug-In there?).
But the biggest surprise to me is the Fifth Place of South Korea, their home market isn't that big and it wasn't been much mentioned here, but nevertheless it is rewarding to know that they keep following us. By the way, does any of you have the SK numbers? It seems that my source there had dried out...
Finally, Russia. Despite a symbolic (To say the most) market, there are many followers there of electric cars scene in general, and EV Sales in particular, with much feedback coming from there, i must thank our Russian followers for their enthusiasm, especially considering that it must not be easy to EVangelize (Joke intended) their compatriots to plug-in cars.
Looking by most popular articles, China (#1 and #8) proves to be the "IT" thing of the moment, with many stock websites citing EV Sales in Tesla and Kandi articles. Yes, something important is happening in this market...
Next in #2 we have the sales history of plug-ins in Norway, back from the 90's until today, this is something that i will look up to do something similar to other markets in the future.
The Norway and Europe articles are also popular, with the first one being analyzed by many like a case study for the future in other EV markets.
