More than half a million EVs will be sold in Europe next year. More than a million worldwide.

There were more than a million EV’s sold this year, probably in November.

The Nissan Leaf will do very well in Japan, Europe and the US.

It will be interesting to see how the numbers will look at the end of next year, after Tesla gets Model 3 production going. I would bet the US will catch up or even overtake Europe.
