Electric Car Market Up 27% In Europe

The German hot hatch was up 151%, reaching a respectable 1,629 registrations in May. This time around, 3 out 4 units sold were the fully electric variety, a great contrast with what happened 12 months ago, when the REx variety used to outsell the all-electric version. What extended range does, huh? Anyway, these are solid results for the BMW model, especially in Norway, which saw 410 registrations, all of them being fully electrics! The i3 also had a good month in its home, Germany (297 registrations) — well, relative to other months’ sales and other model sales there. Looking ahead, expect deliveries to slowly drop as people anticipate another revised version with presumably more range, coming later in the year.
