All Mighty Tesla
With 221 units sold, the Danish EV market grew 46% regarding the same month last year, with the EV Share dropping just a tad to 1,43%, still a significant departure from the 0.88% of last year.
The super-hot Tesla Model S continues in the three digit sales area (113 new Model S), in an unprecedented streak of five times in a row, a performance that has put other EV's far behind, but also Tesla ICE competitors to shame (The Audi A6 sold 82 units last month, the Merc E-Class sold 80 and the BMW 5-Series, only 14...) and the american car is already leading the YTD ranking in their class (959 units for the Model S, vs 876 for the A6, 530 for the E-Class and 280 for the 5-Series)...It seems the Bimmer is feeling the pinch harder than the other two.
Looking elsewhere, there are other facts to mention:
- The Renault Zoe is experiencing a brilliant recovery (67 units in October, 89 in September), but it might be too late to reach the Third Place, for now in the hands of the Nissan e-NV200 / Evalia twins;
- The Nissan Leaf didn't registered any unit last month, the first time this happens in three years! It looks Danish consumers are all waiting for the 30KWh version...
- There was a (small) surge in the VW e-Golf sales, registering 11 units, its best month ever, and probably due to the dieselgate scandal, with some buyers shifting from diesel to electric.
Regarding the manufacturers ranking, Tesla if far ahead everyone else, with 39% share (Up 1%), followed by BMW (21%, down 2%) and Nissan (20%, down 1%).
A final mention to Fuel Cell Vehicle sales, there was one new Hyundai ix35 FCEV registered last month, making it 14 YTD, while the Toyota Mirai registered its second unit, making a grand total of 16 FCEV's sold this year.
