2014 BMW i3 Electric Car side view

With 8.096 units sold in June, the European EV market grew 84% regarding the same month last year, continuing the solid that has been experiencing throughout this year.

Looking at the models ranking, the Outlander PHEV was again the Best Seller of the month, with 1.533 units, distancing itself from the #2 Nissan Leaf (1.131 units sold).

For the first time this year, four cars sold in the thousands, with the aforementioned Outlander PHEV and Nissan Leaf being two of them, but also the Tesla Model S (1.135 units) and the Renault Zoe (1.016) did it, a special mention for the french hatch performance, since it’s only the third time it reaches this kind of sales, and it had been twelve months since the last time it did (1.358 units in June ’13), this brilliant performance allowed it to jump two positions in the YTD ranking to #5 and it’s now with eyes set on the BMW i3 to reach #4 and recover the B-Segment leadership.

Final mention for two newcomers, the VW e-Golf is slowly climbing its way into the Top 10 and the BMW i8  sports car already appears at the bottom of this new Top 25 (5 more than before) ranking,with 60 registrations.
