Belgium May 2016

Volvo XC90 T8: Belgian EV Favorite.

SUV-Land Edition

May was another great month for plug-ins, with 741 EV's registered, up 119% YoY, with the EV Share steady at 1.54%, being currently one of the fastest growing markets.

SUV's continue to own the market, with all the places in the Podium belonging to that class: The BMW X5 PHEV (130 units) was the Monthly Best-Seller for the first time, followed by the Volvo XC90 T8 (120) and the Porsche Cayenne Plug-In (116 units, best result in 11 months).

Looking at the YTD ranking, the aforementioned high-end SUV's occupy the Podium, with five out of the Top 10 positions belonging to SUV's.

Looking at the changes in the ranking, there was an important shift in the Fourth Position, with the Nissan Leaf becoming the best-selling BEV, switching places with the Tesla Model S, that with only 9 units, it had its worst month in 20(!) months. Are Belgian Tesla-lovers already waiting for the Model X?

In the manufacturers ranking, BMW (26%, up 2%) has finally replaced Volvo (23%) from the leadership. In Third we have Porsche, with 12% (Up 1%)

There were an additional  4 Toyota Mirai registered last month, with the YTD numbers now at 8 units, making Belgium one of the most successful markets for the Terminator-Car.

    It is going to be interesting to observe the Model X performance.
