Plug-in market share approaching one-third.
Iceland again shows that it's the top plug-in market with record market share of 27% in October! Part of the reason behind such a high result is the general decrease of car sales, but anyways, in the first 10 months of 2018. some 18% of cars sold in Iceland were rechargeable.
In October, sales amounted to about 267 plug-ins, which shows how tiny the market is. The biggest player in Iceland is the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV with 66 sales last month and 888 YTD (compared to 3,012 plug-ins overall). There is a chance that the Outlander PHEV will become the first model to pass 1,000 sales in one year.
