Then, this is it, your only choice, the Nissan Evalia EV

Outlander PHEV wins August, but Tesla Model 3 remains #1 YTD

The Spanish plug-in market hit 937 units in August, up 83% YoY, while looking at market share, August reached 1.2%, keeping the 2019 PEV share at 1.3%.

As for last month best sellers, the #1 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV scored 113 registrations last month, a good result for the veteran model, that allowed it to strengthen its 3rd position. 

Good news also for the Renault Zoe, that recovered the 5th spot, while the remaining position changes happened in the second half of the table, with the Range Rover Sport PHEV pushing its heavy body to #17, and the Porsche Panamera PHEV joining the ranking at #19.

With the sleek Porsche Taycan now out on the open, it sure will be interesting to see how the Panamera PHEV will behave, now that its BEV sibling is casting its long, wide shadow, over it. 

Just outside the Top 20, things are pretty balanced, with the #21 Audi e-Tron (133 units), #22 Tesla Model S (125) and Tesla Model X (121), all focused in a Top 20 spot, less than 15 units away.

On the manufacturers ranking, the race is pretty hot, with Tesla (14%) and Nissan (13%) running for Number One, while BMW (11%), Hyundai (10%), and Mitsubishi (9%), all race for the last place in the podium.


  1. The improved Renault ZOE 2 can be ordered now and will increase the ZOE ranking for the next month.

  2. YTD published numbers put standings at:
    1st Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance with 3093 units
    2nd BMW Group with 1973 units
    3rd Kia-Hyundai with 1631 units

    1. Kia no venderá ni un solo vehículo híbrido enchufables ni eléctrico en lo que resta de 2019

    2. That same story is being repeated across Europe :(

  3. I don't think Taycan is throwing much of a shadow over Panamera... Despite all the questionable Model S comparisons, it's more of a sports coupe than a family sedan. Indeed Porsche explicitly said they made it a unique form factor on purpose, to avoid in-house competition.

  4. Heh, looks like the most interesting race is at the end of the table: five different premium vehicles running head-to-head for the last two places...

    I-Pace will most likely lose its spot next month -- but which of the others make it is anyone's guess I'd say.

    With those three competing for a place in the top-20, and only the Porsche Panamera a candidate to be replaced, it is getting crowded for place 20.

    Perhaps have a special "Luxury Quartet" for these three with the I-Pace? The listing is lacking essential information without these models. Not only about Spain, but for comparisons with other countries.

  6. Unfortunately still very low number of plug-ins for Spain, nothing to speak of.
