7 Cool Electric Vehicle Charts From POD Point

As noted in this article, I recently interviewed the CEO and founder of POD Point, Erik Fairbairn. POD Point is the top supplier of EV charging equipment in the UK, so it has quite a bit of useful data on hand. Following our interview, Erik passed along an interesting infographic, and I thought it would be fun […]

The postal service of Norway, the Posten, will soon possess an electric vehicle fleet enriched by the purchase of an additional 240 new Renault Kangoo Maxi ZEs, according to recent reports. The Norwegian postal service already possesses a fleet of 900 electric vehicles — this includes electric cars as well as bikes, quadricycles, etc. The […]

French EV Sales Numbers For September 2015

The figures for electric vehicle registrations (a proxy for sales) in France during the month of September 2015 are now in. They don’t really provide any surprises, but they’re probably worth taking a look at anyways. Altogether, 2,709 electric vehicles (EVs) were registered in France during the month, meaning that overall sales have barely risen at all as […]

Nissan LEAF #1 In Norway Again

My trip to Florida for the EV Technology & Transportation Summit has delayed this report a bit, but I squeezed it in before the end of the month. The exciting bit of the story is that the Nissan LEAF pulled back in front of the Volkswagen e-Golf in September. For the year through September, though, […]

Volkswagen E-Golf Crushing Competition In Norway

I’ve finally got what seems to be official and complete data on electric car registrations in Norway. Woohoo! (In case you haven’t been following along for years, public data on electric car sales/registrations are not available for all models in practically every large country in the world.) However, last month, a reader tipped me off to an obscure (and […]

Ranking Automakers On Their Electric Commitment (Top 10 List)

This is going to be a fun one. 😀 No matter how this ranking turns out, people are going to have differing opinions, sometimes very strong ones. But that’s the nature of subjective rankings, especially about topics people are very emotional about. Considering how people name their cars, how they will buy from a single […]

Norway Electric Car Sales = 23% Of The Market (Again)

The numbers for Norway electric car sales are “in.” Official numbers are not provided for several models that share a base name with gasmobiles, so José Pontes has made estimates for them, and we’ll just have to go with his numbers. Why a country with such a developed electric car market won’t break out their numbers […]

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Nearly Knocked Off The Podium In Netherlands!

Well, the Netherlands is certainly turning out to be one of the most interesting electric vehicle markets in the world. It is #2 in terms of electric cars’ percentage of total new car sales, but the cars leading the pack keep changing. The Dutch plug-in hybrid fetish is apparently as strong as ever, and some new […]

EV Owner & Lessee Survey

I’ve been long planning to do an EV owner and lessee survey like this, so I am super eager to see the results. (I’m going to have a hard time not watching them obsessively as they come in.) But the key, of course, is getting EV owners and lessees to complete the survey. If you drive […]

Europe Electric Car Sales — Zoe #1, Model S #2, Outlander PHEV #3 In June

Europe electric car sales are in for the month of June from Jose Pontes*. It’s a really interesting market. More interesting than North America, China, or any other, imho. Individual country markets in Europe are getting stronger, but they are very different from one another, so the broader continental charts can vary a lot. In […]

Top 25 Electric Cars In Europe (May Registrations Roundup)

I love looking at the Dutch, French, German, and Norwegian electric car sales data, but looking at the bigger European picture is where the real fun is. Throwing everything together from the different countries, it’s hard to have a good idea where they will fall out. Plus, the numbers get bigger. Before we get into […]

Volkswagen e-Golf Is Ecstatic In Norway, Clear #1

After covering France (#2), Netherlands (#3), and Germany (#4) electric car sales, it’s time to cover the big dog — the #1 electric car market in Europe. Norway, here we come! It’s a very different story in each of these markets. Like France, most electric car sales are for fully electric cars. However, unlike France, […]

Volkswagen Golf GTE Takes #1 From Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV In Netherlands

The Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) had been holding the #1 spot in electric car sales in the Netherlands for a while. It’s been doing well in other European markets as well, propelling it to #1 in Europe as a whole. But it has been kicked off its throne in the Netherlands. Another plug-in hybrid (both of which […]

Renault Zoe Dominates Electric Car Sales In France (Charts)

It’s one of the electric cars I still haven’t driven and would love to give a spin. The Renault Zoe is dominating electric car sales in its home country of France this year, with its Japanese cousin the Nissan LEAF and sibling the Renault Kangoo ZE coming in a very distant #2 and #3, respectively. […]

Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Tops Another Market…

The Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) is topping market after market these days. With strong sales in a few countries, it even rose to #1 in Europe recently. The latest news is that it has passed up the Nissan LEAF (long he #1 electric car in many a market) to top the UK electric car charts.

European EV Sales (April 2015)

Note the usual disclaimer about European EV sales.* Electric vehicle (EV) sales figures for the European market during the month of April 2015 are now in, and things are looking good. The continent had its third best month ever with regard to total EV sales — seeing a 40% growth rate as compared against April […]

European Electric Car Registrations (March 2015)

The European electric vehicle (EV) market is continuing to see strong growth, based on registrations during March — with roughly 18,000 units registered, blowing past the old monthly record (set in December 2013) for the old continent. The old record was 14,197 units registered. As it stands, more than 36,000 EVs have been registered in the […]
