Plug-in car sales for Europe so far in 2017 have given us a lot of satisfaction, as we not only see strong growth, but a return to near record levels normally reserved for the end of the year, when special forces are at work pushing the numbers higher.

For the month of March, nearly 29,000 plug-in cars were sold!
And after first three months, the cumulative result now stands at some 65,000, putting the region on track for 250,000-300,000 sales this year.
Over all the the automakers, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance have the most reasons to be satisfied, and here is why:
- Renault ZOE #1 - 3,762 (9,127 YTD)
- Nissan LEAF #2 - 3,188 (5,911 YTD)
- Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV #3 - 3,129 (5,375 YTD)
We should note that Tesla also excelled in March, taking the next two spots (#4 and #5), with 2,060 Model S sales and 2,016 Model X deliveries.
The BMW i3 was sixth with 1,784 sales, but still retains the fourth spot overall YTD (5,065).
