Let's look at how EV Sales stand, if we divide the world by continental blocks:

North America - 128.000 units in 2016, 550.000 stock.

The three markets combined (USA, Canada and Mexico) picture is almost the same as the US EV market, given the size of this last one, but there are small nuances, the EV market share drops slightly to 0.8%, while the difference between the first two (Tesla Model S and Chevrolet Volt) is smaller, due to the Canadian love for the plug-in hybrid Chevy.

2016 Ranking:

Tesla Model S - 22k
Chevrolet Volt - 21k
Tesla Model X - 14k

Europe - 170.000 units in 2016, 586.000 stock

It has a dedicated section, here.

Asia (Excluding China) - 27.000 units in 2016, 165.000 stock

Historically, the main market has been is Japan by a wide margin, but the South Korean EV market has been growing, while Japan has been down to 2011 levels, so it's no wonder that a Hyundai shows up in Third Place.

2016 Ranking:

Nissan Leaf - 14k
Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV - 5k
Hyundai Ioniq Electric - 3k

China - 258.000 units in 2016, 558.000 stock

Considering the unique biodiversity regarding plug-in cars, this market is best considered as a different entity, which has a dedicated section, here.

Oceania - 2.000 units in 2016, 6.000 stock

Basically Australia and New Zealand combined, numbers are highly influenced by those of the Australian market, where plug-in sales are slow, with the market share at a low 0.15%, but in New Zealand the picture is rosier, it has a respectable 0.3% market share and has been growing steadily over the years. 


Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV - 900 units;
Tesla Model S - 600 units;
BMW i3 - 200 units.

Central and South America - 300 units in 2016, 1.000 stock

A market still in its infancy, the early adopter Costa Rica was surpassed by Colombia, which is responsible for half the sales this year, while everyone is waiting for Brazil for its "Switch on" moment and start to deliver sales in significant numbers. Regarding models, the "big" players in this area are Renault, the major seller, with BYD a distant Second, while the Renault Twizy is the Best Selling model, with some 120 units sold in 2016.

Africa - 200 units in 2016, 600 stock

The only markets with available data are South Africa and Morocco, with the first owning 90% of sales, so it is with no surprise that the ranking reflects that, with the BMW i3 being the best seller, with over 100 units.

  1. Central America is a part of North America. Not that it matters for EV sales, just to get the geography correct.
