European EV Sales Up 91% In First Half Of 2014

In the first half of 2014, European EV sales were up about 91% compared with the same point in 2013, with total sales of 23,826 electric cars across the continent, reports Automotive News . The Tesla Model S and BMW i3 are two of the top sellers, though with over 7,100 sales, the Nissan LEAF replaced the Renault Zoe as the best-selling electric car in Europe. Model S sales were over 5,330 for the first half of 2014, while Renault Zoe sales have stumbled, slipping about 25% compared to last year as Renault’s electric vehicle strategy seems to be slipping. The Renault Fluence Z.E. was granted a stay of execution thanks to a deal with China , but sales of the Kangoo electric van are also pretty paltry.
