Japan Electric Car Sales Drop As Country Awaits 2nd-Gen EVs

The Japanese electric vehicle market is comprised almost entirely of Japanese auto manufacturers (unsurprisingly), which makes the market an interesting contrast to free-for-all markets like the US.

Best Selling Electric Car In Europe Is Renault Zoe (2016 Electric Car Sales)

The European EV market had approximately 30,000 registrations last month, down 11% over the same month last year. This sales slip, however, had to do with the incentives-derived sales rush of the last quarter of 2015.
