Spain January 2019

Kona EV Shines

Despite the lack of incentives, the Spanish plug-in market is growing, last month it hit 1.113 units, up 52% YoY, with the 2019 PEV Share starting at 1.1%, also thanks to the mainstream market dropping 5%.

Looking at January best sellers, the big news were the 127 registrations of the Hyundai Kona EV, the Crossover best month so far, pulling it to 3rd spot, only behind the 151 units of the #2 Nissan Leaf, and the 165 registrations of the leader Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, that performed its best result ever in Spain.

Interestingly, there is a majority of BEVs on the Top 20, with two Citroen(!) in the ranking, with the e-Berlingo showing up in #13, with 33 deliveries, while the forever-young C-Zero is #15, with 20 units, while another van-with-windows, the Nissan e-Evalia (12 units) is #19.

Jaguar Land Rover also showed up with two representatives, with the much awaited i-Pace joining the ranking in #16, while the Land Rover Range Rover Sport PHEV, besides winning the prize for longest name, started 2019 in #8, with 48 deliveries.

On the manufacturers ranking, the race started pretty balanced, with Hyundai (16%) leading, followed by Mitsubishi and Nissan, both with 15% share, with Mitsu leading by a thread (165 units vs 163).


  1. Wow, Jaguar Land Rover starts 2019 in Spain with a bang: 67 registrations
    How many I-Pace are there so far, since start of deliveries?

    1. And it's not the only market where Land Rover PHEVs are shining...

  2. Where is Tesla? Not a single car sold in Spain?

  3. I'm surprise by Kona results in Spain. Portugal is a bigger market than Spain for BEVs. Why i do not see Kona EV sales(Kauai as it was renamed in Portugal)in Portugal? Bad strategy from Hyundai

    1. Well, that has something to do with the portuguese importer not believing in electromobility.

      I mean, in Portugal the Ioniq HEV costs 5.000€ more than its Kia Niro HEV relative…

      I think this alone says it all.
