We finally have some numbers regarding Australia this year, they don't cover the whole market but nevertheless, the major players are all there. And the available numbers are really encouraging...
If 2014 was the year of the Outlander PHEV, with some 75 units/month, the japanese SUV has seen their sales decline a bit this year, and although it continues comfortably in the lead, Tesla is making its presence noted, it is now #2, but hopefully the best benefit of its presence in Australian soil is changing people minds into EV's, something that has been difficult in Aussie-land.
As for BMW, the little i3 is Third, selling 46 units, proving to be another welcome addition to the Australian EV Scene.
As for the veterans Nissan Leaf and Holden Volt, they are relegated to the bottom places, with significant sales declines regarding last year.
