EagleAID, in one of its recent reports, noted that first-time registrations of all-electric cars in Western Europe went up by two-thirds in April and YTD by 58.1%.

Nissan LEAF and Renault ZOE (in France) are pushing the market upwards.

"Hot on the heels of a month that saw the best-ever sales turnout for electric cars, just one month on Europe’s anxious car industry was treated to yet another rare nugget of good news.

That’s chiefly the observation that so far this year the sales share going to all-electric cars like Nissan’s LEAF has risen sharply."

Pure electric cars reached 0.59% market share in West European countries after four months, while a year ago that figure was 0.41%.

Plug-in hybrids probably add another ≈0.6%, so in total we are talking about over 1% market share for plug-in electric cars.
