Down, Down, Down to the Ground Edition

In a time that fiscal changes and additional austerity measures are being enforced in France, it's no wonder that the french ev market is hurting, with just 775 units sold, the worst result in a year.

Looking at the models ranking, the Renault Kangoo ZE topped the charts, but the real news is the #2 place of the Nissan Leaf with 121 units, the first time that the japanese hatch reaches silver. Will we see the Leaf reach #1?

In third, with just 102 units (Worst result since last January), the Renault Zoe just doesn't seem to reverse the negative trend of the last months, selling less and less each month and taking the french ev market with it.

Good result for the Bollore Bluecar, with 81 registrations and a meritable #4 place.

Looking at the brands ranking, Renault is always on top, but share is down to 43%, when it was 69% in 2013. In second we have Nissan, with 16% share, followed by Bollore with 10%.

Zoe endures Edition

99 ev's were sold in Switzerland this January, it might not sound much, but it's twice as much as last year, so this is a market starting the year with the right foot.

Looking at the models ranking, the Zoe keeps on getting good lovin' from the swiss market (30 units sold), leading head and shoulders above its posh, new competition (Tesla Model S and Bmw i3), #2 and #3 this month.

 McLaren registered one P1, justifying the country fame as 'Powerfulcars land'.

Stuck in second gear Edition

With 818 plug-ins sold in January, the German EV market still hasn't grown the way it would be expected, just like a bicycle racer stuck in second gear.

The BMW i3 (229 units sold) failed yet again to remove Smart from #1, with the third spot going for the VW e-Up!, thus removing foreign brands from the podium.

Upside Down Edition

Another great month for EV sales in Belgium, with 112 units sold and a very expensive podium: The Porsche Panamera is #1 (!) with 29 units, followed by the Model S and V60 Plug-in tied in #2 with 21 units.

Is it a coincidence that sensible Belgium prefers high-end plug-ins or is it a trend that will be transmitted to other countries? Only time will tell.

Post-Orgasmic Chill Edition

After several record breaking months, no doubt fueled with dutch sales, the european market took a moment to breath and enjoy the moment, but somehow the Nissan Leaf kept on pressing sales, with 1.243 units sold, its second best score ever. The Volvo V60 Plug-In (439 units), was second and in third we have the Volkswagen e-Up!, a strong performer these days.
On the other hand, Renault showed a poor performance, with the Zoe just in #7 and the brand dropping to #2 and 13% share, way behind Nissan (28% share).
Last year the french brand had 37% share...
