Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV jumps to the leadership
New Zealand continues to be a hot market, especially since the landing of the Tesla Model 3, with the Kiwi market registering 467 new PEVs in the first two months of 2020, pulling the yearly plugin share to 2,8% share (1,6% BEV), already above the 2,6% share of 2019.
Looking at the models ranking, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV jumped ahead of the Tesla Model 3 and is the new leader, with the Japanese SUV scoring a record 75 registrations, an impressive result for a model that has been on the market for over
500 5 years.
Another surprising result are the 27 deliveries of the VW e-Golf last month, so it seems Volkswagen has included New Zealand in their top tier markets.
Also interesting is the Nissan Leaf showing up in #6, while the Full Size SUV race is pretty balanced, with the #7 Porsche Cayenne PHEV just 4 units ahead of the Audi e-Tron and Tesla Model X, in what could be an entertaining race to follow throughout the year.
