New BEV sales still increased last month, by 4.24% year on year. That said, August 2018 was particularly strong due to the launch of the Leaf40 so it’s actually a quite good result as shown by the 3.35% market share achieved !
The Hyundai Kona is the strongest this month, catching up with the Nissan Leaf. Which one will be the king of 2019 sales ? Too early to say ! Note as well the 3 first Irish Mercedes EQC … and we’re still waiting on the Tesla Model 3.
Used imports are still decreasing (41.3% year on year) . See below for more details
