Audi e-Tron shines in Israel
After a long absence, Israel is back at EVS, since then many things have happened, as this once PHEV-heavy market, the Top 5 Best Sellers of 2018 were all plugin hybrids, has become a bit more BEV-friendly, with BEV share growing from just 7% last year, to 17% (32% in September), mostly thanks to the resounding success of the Audi e-Tron, that jumped to the 3rd spot, and could climb higher in the ranking until the end of the year.
The current PEV share is at 1.4%, which is already a surprisingly good result, but the September share reached an amazing 2.7%, thanks to 471 units, the second best result ever, with the Audi SUV proving to be decisive for this great result, thanks to 129 registrations, the first time a single model reaches three-digits in a single month. A prelude of things to come?
Anyway, the current leader is still the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, followed by another Midsize SUV, the Volvo XC60 PHEV, while outside the podium, the Mercedes E300e plugin hybrid also makes an appearance.
"...the first time a single model reaches three-digits in a single month."ReplyDelete
Are you sure this is true? I have the feeling that in 2012, Better Place's Fluence ZE was delivered in 3 digits at least one month, if not several. After all, they exceeded 1000 deliveries in the country over approximately a year.
Also, this picture of the e-tron was surely not taken in Israel :)
You are probably right, i will change the text.Delete
Regarding the picture, i tried to find e-Tron pictures in Israel, but nothing good showed up, so i used this one.
I curious about the A3 e-tron: are these just old stocks of units they didn't manage to sell in Europe before WLTP -- or are these still being made for non-European markets?...ReplyDelete
I believe it was old stock units, as most of registrations were made in H1 2019Delete
Israel is just another RoW market, unlikely to require even Euro 6 compliance, less so data according WLTP.Delete
No such thing as older or new stock, cars are made according to market & region compliance.
Do you have a source for that?Delete
