Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Edges Out Tesla Model S For #2 Spot

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Edges Out Tesla Model S For #2 Spot

The winner...by a wide margin...is the Nissan LEAF.

On the global level, no electric vehicle sells in volumes anywhere near the Nissan LEAF.

Last year, LEAF sales worldwide totaled 61,027 units.  The second place plug-in vehicle, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, tallied 31,689 sales in 2014 around the globe (but zero in the U.S.).

In third place, and trailing the Outlander by just a tiny amount, was the Tesla Model S with 31,623 units sold worldwide in 2014.

Falling well below the 30,000-unit threshold in fourth place was the Chevrolet Volt (and its siblings: Vauxhall & Opel Ampera) at 21,293 sold in 2014.
