Volkswagen tripled sales of e-Golf in Austria last year
Plug-in electric car sales in Austria increased in 2018 by 22% to 8,848, which is moderate compared to some quickly expanding markets, but the market share of 2.6% (up from 2.1% in 2017) is still way better than the average around the world.
One of the biggest surprises to us is that Volkswagen e-Golf was the best-selling model in Austria by a wide margin. e-Golf (1,836) nearly outpaced second Renault ZOE (1,170) and third Nissan LEAF (982) combined.
In terms of brands, the biggest share falls on Volkswagen (22%), BMW (16%) and Renault (13%).
