In terms of best selling models, we see Kia Soul EV (423) and BMW i3 (422 - 314 BEVs and 108 REx), followed by smart fortwo electric (387).

However, that's all not enough to beat the all-electric light delivery vehicle StreetScooter, which noted 473 new registrations, which also led the market in June (680 new registrations).

It's funny to see that Deutsche Post DHL Group via its subsidiary StreetScooter GmbH is able to sell more EVs than legacy manufacturers, especially since those manufacuters were not interested in production of affordable delivery vehicles for DHL.

Tesla registrations in July amounted to just 95 (51 S and 44 X), which is just over half of last year's 180. On the other hand, the new Jaguar begins customer deliveries of I-PACE with 70 registrations.
