Yes, you have read it right, this about sales in 2012, but i believe the sales data i've stumbled a few days ago is worth noting, as they come from countries out of the usual Green Car Media focus. To me it's the first insight into their plug-in sales and i believe it is also the first time they go public.
Here they go:
The highest waged country in the EU registered 85 plug-in cars in 2012 with Renault leading the charge.
|1||Renault Kangoo ZE||23|
|2||Opel Ampera / Chev. Volt||20|
|4||Renault Fluence ZE||9|
The PSA (Peugeot and Citröen) brands did a lot to push EV's in Central and Eastern Europe, here's another proof of that.
Just 6 units were registered in 2012 here, when in neighboring Czech Rep. 98 units were sold that year.
Again Opel and Citröen testing the waters for plug-ins here.
Final mention for Turkey, 92 Renault Fluence ZE were sold in 2012 there, a small drop in the general Turkish market, but nevertheless it was enough to make it one of the top markets for the french sedan.
