For the second month in a row, the VW ID.3 is leading the BEV sales in Ireland (and again, the whole market), with 94 units registered. Thanks to that and also good performance from the Model 3 and E-Niro, BEV market share is at 10.97% for the month, and 4.45% in 2020 to date. The new entrant to the game this month is the Honda e ! Making 23 different BEVs sold new in 2020. Every month we’re getting a little more choice !
With Covid restrictions and end of year coming, the 2020 top 3 will probably be the same as today : Tesla Model 3 leads, followed by the Nissan Leaf and the Hyundai Kona. The Nissan Leaf still largely leads the (small) used import segment.
But the surprise this month cam from the LCV market with no less than 286 (!) Renault Kangoo ZE registerd ! Which is more than any other vehicle this month and over 600 so far this year. Will there be more next month ? The Kangoo ZE might become the most popular Irish BEV of 2020 !
