Nissan Leaf surges
The PEV market continues growing at a good pace (+53% YoY), allowing the respective share to hover at around 1% (1.1% in September, 0.9% YTD).
Slovenia's love for the BMW i3 is fading, with the Renault Zoe outrunning it for a couple of months already, while the Nissan Leaf profited from a record-breaking performance (27 units last month), to surpass the German hatcbach and reach #2.
Elsewhere, despite a slower selling i3, BMW has four models in the Top 4, which highlights the brand popularity in this market.
As mentioned before, BMW (30%) is a popular choice here, leading the manufacturers race, followed by Renault (15%) and Smart (15%), while Hyundai (9%), is just outside the podium.
The BEV/PHEV breakdown shows us that this continues to be a BEV-friendly market, with BEVs owning 65% of Plug-in sales.
I always see this as the sales results from 2-3 month earlier, combined with the logistics for niche products of the head office.ReplyDelete
But even viewed through those glasses, 50% for the Nissan Leaf in September is impressive. For the Renault Zoe and BMW i3 each one car-trailer reached Slovenia.
It looks like the new EV frontier is going east to the former communist states now that Southern Europe (Iberia and the boot) is caching on. Can you get halfway decent stats out of those countries?
And what is happening at the other site of the Mediterranean? In countries like Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia the combination of EV and PV must become very attractive, especially outside the big cities.
I will post more Eastern European in the future.Delete
As for the South side, Morocco has some EVs, most are Renaults, and some charging stations too.
I've heard of Portuguese EV owners that went all the way down to Morocco, and didn't had problems there.
Thanks for bringing more good news in the future :-)Delete
