Nissan Leaf Crushes Competition In Denmark Electrified Vehicle Sales

  • Published on May 12th, 2014 by

There’s no other way to say it — the Nissan Leaf crushed the competition in Denmark in April. It accounted for 68% of all electrified vehicle registrations. The Tesla Model S was a distant #2 with 12% of the market and the VW e-Up! was close behind it with 10% of the market. The remaining registrations can be counted on three hands.

January through April, the Leaf was also #1 but not by so wide a margin. For that time period, it captured 45% of the market, the Model S captured 30%, the VW e-Up! captured 13%, and the Renault Zoe captured 8%.

Specific registration totals can be seen in the interactive charts above and the static versions of those below.

    Most of the Leaf sale is AVIS buying 400 to rent at a very good monthly rate – I drive one of them 🙂
