This year the german EV market is eventful, with already four different leaders (Smart Fortwo ED in January, Citröen C-Zero in February, Renault Twizy in March and Nissan Leaf in April) and a new YTD leader, the Smart Fortwo ED, looking to recover the #1 place it had in 2010.
This month the Nissan Leaf scored for the first time the best selling trophy, with a personal best 191 units, followed by the Twizy with 106 units and looking to recover some positions it had lost during the Winter (It is now in third place YTD, behind the #1 position it had last year). Dropping 3 places to #5, the Opel Ampera is losing steam, just like its Volt cousin, which still has his scorecard in blank.
The Renault Zoe scored a respectable #4 in April and now is #5 YTD, something tells me that the french supermini is heading for the top three spots in the coming months.
By brands, Renault has a 22% share, down from 56% in '12, losing the #1 place to Smart (29%).
