|R240, the new (And cheaper) Zoe will help spur sales (even) further|
With some 8.200 units, the European EV market continues to post significant growth rates, sales were up 57% regarding the same month last year, so the 120K target for 2015 might be already small...Let's see how the next months develop.
Looking at the models ranking, the Outlander PHEV continues sovereign, being the only model to reach the four-digit area (1.184 units), while the Renault Zoe is back at good performances (979 sales), winning the Monthly Best-Selling Pure Electric car, ahead of the e-Golf (970 units) and the Nissan Leaf (740 units, worst performance since March '13). In Fifth we get the BMW i3, a return to form after a poor January.
But changes didn't stopped there, in the second half of the ranking, the Renault Kangoo ZE recovered some pulse and raised three positions to #13, still far from the #8 won last year, but enough to get away from its closest competitor on the LCV trophy, the #17 Nissan e-NV200.
Looking at the brands ranking, Volkswagen continues firm in the leadership, with 23% share, followed by Mitsubishi (19%), while Renault is recovering ground, it's now Third with 13% share.
