Thanks to EagleAID, we now know  the four top all-electric car models in Western Europe by sales numbers for 2015.

As Western Europe represents nearly all of the BEV sales in the whole Europe, these results could be applied for all of Europe.

TOP 4 All-Electric Cars In Western Europe:

  • Renault ZOE – around 18,400
  • Tesla Model S – nearly 16,000
  • Nissan LEAF – around 15,000
  • Volkswagen e-Golf – around 11,000

The best selling BEV is the Renault ZOE, which added over 3,000 in December alone to get to roughly 18,400 in total for 2015.

The second big winner is the Tesla Model S – judging from the chart at up to 16,000. It’s a tremendous result – nearly twice that of 2014.

The Nissan LEAF, with around 15,000 sales in 2015, is more or less at the same level as in 2014, so Nissan can’t be happy at all. No growth of sales and a drop from #1 to #3 isn’t the result Nissan was looking for.

Volkswagen e-Golf is on rise, as up to about 11,000 were sold last year. It’s a good result, but 8,943 are registrations in Norway, so that’s a rather odd distribution of sales.

    Electric cars continue to make inroads in Europe, which to my way of thinking, is the natural place for them to shine.

  2. Elroy says:

    Do the LEAF and ZOE share similar drivetrain components?
    Combined, the Nissan/Renault alliance have big sales numbers.

    1. They don’t share anything.

      Zoe shares many components with other Renault cars.
      Leaf shares many components with other Nissan cars.

  3. Adding the e-NV200 sales and Nissan is back on 2nd place.

  4. Alex says:

    Until October Leaf was on first place, Nov. and Dec. there where no Leafs available, neither the 24 kWh version nor the 30 kWh version.
