Kia Niro PHEV was the best selling plug-in model in May, but will it catch the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV this year?

While the Swedish car market decreases significantly (down 15% in May), the plug-in electric car sales keep increasing, despite supply constraints of many all-electric models.

In May, some 2,785 new passenger plug-in were registered in Sweden (up 43% year-over-year) at a very high 12% market share.

Sales stats show also that all-electric models increased three-times, while the plug-in hybrid decreased by 2%. After five months, the total volume is 15,622.

The big thing for the month of May is Kia Niro PHEV, which with 406 sales (1,508 YTD) outsold the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV  - 365 (2,204 YTD). The Japanese plug-in hybrid remains the top choice in Sweden YTD.

Tesla Model 3 with 198 sales in May, just behind the Renault ZOE (199), now needs to watch its back to not lose second place for the year (1,649).
