Portugal is one of those markets in Europe where the Nissan LEAF remains the best-selling electric car.

Portugal's plug-in electric car market continues to grow at a rapid pace this year, which as in the case of many other countries, happens as overall car sales are declining.

In June, sales amounted to 1,263 (up 75% year-over-year) at 5% market share, not far from the record of 1,283 in March.

The first half of the year closed with 5,988 (up 58% year-over-year) at an average of 4.7% market share. Most of the sales are now BEVs (64% YTD).
