The European passenger plug-in car market in June achieved its second-best result ever of close to 47,400 at a growth rate of 24% year-over-year. Market share amounted 3.2%.
It could be better, but currently, PHEVs are in retreat (down 38% year-over-year), which offsets most of the BEV growth (up 98% year-over-year to 34,000 or 73% of all plug-ins)
After six months of 2019, sales increased 34% to over 248,600 at 3.0% market share and BEVs account for two-thirds (66%).
Plug-In Electric Car Sales In Europe – June 2019
Most popular models
The end of the quarter, as usual, is the month of volume Tesla deliveries. Because Tesla is the biggest plug-in player in Europe (with 17% share), also European sales surge every three months.
Of course, the top-selling model in June was the Tesla Model 3 (11,604), but the Californian company wasn't able to match the outstanding March (15,771).
Tesla Model 3 - 11,604 (new) and 37,780 YTD
Renault ZOE - 4,881 (up 43%) and 24,288 YTD
Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV - 3,580 (up 67%) and 18,982 YTD
BMW i3 - 2,520 (up 26%) and 18,982 YTD
Volkswagen e-Golf - 2,246 (up 55%) and 12,618 YTD
It's significant that the Nissan LEAF (2,241 in June and 16,348 YTD), after being the best-selling model in 2018, is now outside the top 5 for the month and fell to 5th for the year, behind the BMW i3. The only hope is the longer-range Nissan LEAF e+ with 62 kWh battery, which should enter sales in the first batch of European markets about now.
Sales in Europe remain higher than in the U.S.:
