Over 10% Of Smart & Nissan Sales In Western Europe Are BEVs

MAR 5 2019 BY MARK KANE 4

The transformation to BEVs progresses

Sales data compiled by industry analyst Matthias Schmidt (schmidtmatthias.de) reveals all-electric car sales share out of the overall result for particular brands in Western Europe in January 2019. The results are quite interesting and sometimes surprising.

The highest share of over 13% is noted by smart, but it’s hard to say whether smart can be satisfied when the brand soon will go all-electric in Europe, which would be a serious threat to sales volume.

Of course, the all-electric only brand Tesla is at 100%.

The second with a double-digit share is Nissanabove 10%. There is a high probability that Nissan will improve with the new Nissan LEAF e+ from summer 2019 on.

The biggest surprise is, however, that Hyundai is already third with 8% in January! The South Korean brand is limited by production constraints, which means that there is potential for >10% without any changes to the offer or new models.

Then we see Renault, below 6% and BMW at 4%, followed by Kia below 4%. Jaguar moves towards 3%, while Volkswagen is at 2%.

10 pc is the yipping pont for any automaker. After 10 it wont take long to go over 50%

Nissan used to sell very few cars in Europe… before the qasqai that was an hit… Still it’s just one model. Not to make smaller leaf sales that should be praised.

Hopefully the new models of EVs and eNV200 sales will pick up too.

“The highest share of over 13% is noted by smart, but it’s hard to say whether smart can be satisfied when the brand soon will go all-electric in Europe, which would be a serious threat to sales volume.”

In the Netherlands Smart has already gone all-electric in 2019, so 100% share for all new sales are electric.
