Plug-In Electric Car Sales In Europe – July 2017

Plug-In Electric Car Sales In Europe – July 2017

41% percent more plug-in electric vehicles were sold in Europe in July than a year ago, which continued the strong growth trend we have seen so far in 2017 with 154,733 plug-in deliveries overall - up 34%.

Out of the total 19,643 sales that were made in July, nearly 10% were from local bestseller - the Renault ZOE, which was #1 at 1,919 deliveries - up 68%.

In total, four models managed to exceed 1,000 sales in July, and into 5 figures (10,000+) over the first seven months of the year:

Top 10 plug-in best sellers for 2017 YTD:

  • #1 Renault ZOE 1,919 (18,739 YTD)
  • #2 Nissan LEAF1,128 (12,189YTD)
  • #3 BMW i3 1,277 (11,501 YTD)
  • #4 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV – 1,406 (10,708 YTD)
  • #5 Tesla Model S 547 (7,269 YTD)
  • #6 Mercedes GLC 350 - 991 (6,917)
  • #7 VW Passat GTE -627 (6,864)
  • #8 BMW 225xe Active Tourer - 901 (6,055)
  • #9 Tesla Model X - 562 (6,021)
  • #10 BMW 330e - 662 (5,614)
The European version of Chevrolet Bolt EV - Opel Ampera-e still moves slowly given its thin supply from the US, and the YTD numbers have yet to crack the Top 30.  For some prospective on that, even the new MINI Countryman PHEV is scaling sales much faster than the Ampera-e, as in July the quirky MINI notched 452 sales (1,281 in June-July).
