BEVs to power

After a long absence, the Slovenian PEV market is back and it shows a changing market: if plugin registrations are down by 20% YoY, to 382 units, dragging down the PEV share, to 0,8% (0,5% last month), looking at the numbers in further detail, BEVs continue growing (+10% YoY), while PHEVs are crashing (-78% YoY!), being these last ones the sole reason for the current drop.

On the other hand, if this was traditionally a BEV-friendly market, now it is almost unanymous: 91% of registrations belong to BEVs, and it shows on the Best Selling Top 10: only the #10 BMW 225xe Active Tourer is a plugin hybrid, and this last model shouldn't stay there for long, as a certain Tesla Model 3 is #11, only unit behind...

Looking at the Slovenia Best Sellers, the popular BMW i3 is leading the way, but has the Nissan Leaf just two units behind, so this should be an entretaining race to follow.

Elsewhere, there are a few surprises, with the Smart Forfour EV showing up in 3rd, while the Hyundai Kona EV replaced the Ioniq PHEV as the lieutenant of the Hyundai Ioniq Electric Best Seller, all while the #9 Audi e-Tron is the Best Selling Luxury model.

As mentioned before, last year winner BMW is losing share (23%) due to the PHEV fall from grace, with Smart (21% share!) now following the leader closely, followed by the #3 Nissan (16%), while Renault (13%) and Hyundai (also 13%) are trying to reach the medals.


  1. The home grown Smart ForFour success isn't really a surprise. Like in many other european markets, the wave of new PHEV arrivals it is going to be interesting to monitor.

    1. Will the new PHEVs be able to recover ground to BEVs? I think they will, but i believe it will not return to reach parity even.

      BEVs are here to stay, now it's just a matter of "how fast?"
