While Eagle Aid’s presentation of the data attempts to spin it into a negative, we see the results as mostly positive.

Okay, here’s our positive spin (strikethroughs aka strikeouts added by us) on Eagle Aid’s data

“July’s electric car registrations in Western Europe topped last year’s levels, but the extent of the gain fell well short of higher earlier expectations.”

“That’s chiefly because the expected initial registration bulge in France, following the market introduction of Renault’s all-electric ZOE, has so far failed to materialize.”

“Despite the anticipated tailwind from the French domestic ZOE launch, July’s electric car registrations in France fell unexpectedly by 17.2 per cent to 492 units.”
