Changes in the electric car market in Spain
Absolute best-seller last month was Tesla Model 3 (No.1) with 396 units sold. Nissan Leaf (No.2) is the second best-selling EV with 278 registrations in March. Renault Zoe (No.7) is on the downfall and it seems the 2017 & 2018 best-seller won’t be able to make a treble. Only 56 units were sold last month. However, the record of 554 units sold in October 2017 is still not broken.
BMW Group had a strong month too. Mini Countryman PHEV (No.4) hit 178 units sold while BMW i3 (No.6) delivered 118 registrations. Tourer (No.8) delivered 166 which is a new year best.
The VW e-Golf came to No.9 while the Volvo XC60 PHEV (No.11) broke its personal best, with 79 registrations.
