Now, That's More Like It!
To finish a positive month for plug-ins around the world, good news from the japanese market: 3.897 units were sold last month, the second best month of the year, pulling the EV Share to 0,94% (Will we see this market end the year at 1%?), while the top two models also had their second best result of the year, with the Leaf again #1 (1.756 units), probably benefitting from the Outlander PHEV (1.450) production constraints, as such, it looks that the Leaf will be again the Best Seller of the Year.
Good result for the Prius Plug-In, with 358 sales, securing a comfortable Third Spot YTD, while the #6 BMW i3 is looking to pass the Miev duo above it.
Three new models appear on the ranking: Tesla registered its first 8 units in Japan and BMW sold its first i8, and a new model shows up here, despite being on sale since last year: The Accord Plug-In joins the ranking in #8, hoping to pass the Minicab Miev Truck and reach #7.
