After a very disappointing month of January, BEV sales are this months up 18% compared to February 2017, on a stable car market. It means BEV market share went up, to 0,42%. PHEV sales on the other hand have grown 60+%!
Surprisingly, it’s not due to the deliveries of the Leaf, down 51% to just 14 units (hopefully new Leaf will start being delivered in March), but to the strength of the Ioniq (27 sales), Tesla S and X, but also E-Golf.
Who would have thought Tesla (19) could oversell Nissan (15) this month ?
On top of the 72 new BEVs sold in February, 30 more were imported as used, bringing a total of 102 extra EVs on Irish roads in February, and the total number of registered EVs to 3008 (since 2007)
