With 8,895 units sold in the first ten months of 2013, the LEAF and 1,286 sold in the month of October, the LEAF grabs “top dog” billing, according to Eagle Aid.

Rounding out the top four (for October and year-to-date) is the Renault Zoe. Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid, and the Chevy Volt/Vauxhall Ampera/Opel Ampera.

Renault Zoe sales for the year are easily into the 7,000-unit plus range.  Meanwhile, the Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid is at 3,547 while the Volt/Ampera family has logged somewhere in the 2,000-ish area for YTD sales.

It’s clear that, in Europe, it’s a two-dog race, but it seems the LEAF will come out as this year’s winner.

The Zoe wasn’t really available anywhere until late spring and in much of Europe until mid summer so I’m impressed at the overall sales – especially given the predictions of doom and gloom when early sales were not as high as anticipated.

The Zoe might not have become the hit (yet) that Renault had hoped, but there’s certainly a market there. And indeed, in Belgium the Zoe only became available in June.
