Electric Car Sales In Western Europe Spurt, But From Miniscule Base

Electric car sales in Western Europe are amazingly strong if you look at the percentages.

Statistics from Britain’s Automotive Industry Data (AID) show electric car’s market share in Western Europe bounded 38 per cent last year, while sales zoomed almost 60 per cent. Unfortunately the base numbers are still pitifully small. Actual sales in 2013 for battery and plug-in hybrids were a barely noticeable 38,617, up from 24,157, for a market share of 0.34 per cent compared with 0.21 per cent in 2012.

Electric cars now on sale include the battery-only Nissan Leaf, Renault Zoe, VW E-Up, Mercedes Benz Smart, and the Tesla Model S. Plug-in hybrids include the Opel-Vauxhall Ampera extended range electric vehicle, the Toyota Prius, Mitsubishi Outlander and a Volvo.
