Half Of Electric Car Sales In Western Europe Are In Lower-Medium Segment
Half of BEVs sales in Europe belongs to lower-medium segment
When breaking down sales of all-electric cars in Western Europe (first half of 2018), it turns out that about every second BEV is in the lower-medium segment, which includes vehicles like the Nissan LEAF, Volkswagen e-Golf or BMW i3 (those three take over 40% of the total).
Electric smart and Renault ZOE take the lead in basic and small car segments, while Tesla Model S and Model X are on top of premium/luxury and SUV/crossover segments. Nissan e-NV200 is the most popular utility model.
Soon the situation will change because there is a growing number of hot SUV/crossovers, and the Tesla Model 3 will surely spark sales in Europe too.
