    EV Sales: Europe October 2013

    - - - Updated - - -

    Switzerland is not considered as european in most statistics, so the numbers for october are:

    With 100 units in October, the swiss market stumbled 30% regarding last month but, despite that, the EV share is atable at.

    This month was the Renault Zoe turn to have a smash month, selling 52 units, making October the second best month of the french hatch in swiss country. As the #2 (Twizy) and #3 (Leaf), only registered one unit, Renault's star-baby distanced itself in #1 on the YTD chart.

    The other car to register significant sales on the EV chart was the Tesla Model S (18 units), making Switzerland one of the most successful markets for the american manufacturer.

    Finally, an unexpected move at the bottom of the YTD chart: The long dead Fisker Karma had some sort of resurrection (Stock clearance?) and sold seven units this month, enough to pass the dead man walking Citröen C-Zero and climb to #8.

    That is such a tiny number.

    The electric car sales in Norway were in October:

    Nissan Leaf: 716
    Tesla Model S: 98
    Mitsubishi i-MiEV: 41
    Peugeot iOn: 21
    Citroen C-Zero: 14
    Other: 35 (mostly Ford Focus Electric, I think)

    That's a total of 925 electric cars, or 7.2% of the new car sales. Additionally, another 310 pre-owned electric cars were imported (240 Leafs, 35 iOn, 22 C-Zero, 8 i-MiEV, 1 Model S, 4 Other), so counting all sales, electric cars took an 8.0% market share.

    I'm not going to try to dig out the plug-in hybrid sales. The public registration numbers are per type of car, so a Prius is a Prius, regardless of drivetrain. 17 Opel Ampera were sold, at least.
