SEAI Tweet The 1,000th EV Registered - We Imagine It Was A Nissan LEAF

SEAI Tweet The 1,000th EV Registered - We Imagine It Was A Nissan LEAF

The SEAI (Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland) announced today that there are now 1,000 registered and operating plug-in vehicles in Ireland today.

By our count, Ireland is the 23rd country to reach that milestone for registrations - so congrats to them!

We haven't seen any data from the country yet from July (as the month is just closing now), but of the first 950 odd EVs, just over 600 were Nissan LEAFs.  More than 70% of EV arrivals in 2015 are also of the Nissan LEAF variety(~300), with the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, Renault Zoe and BMW i3 all competing for a distant second place with around 20-30 units  each.

Editor's Note/Update:  Just to avoid any confusion, the article is on the total registrations milestone for Ireland.  It will still be a couples month before Ireland gets its 1,000th new EV sales
