Electric vehicle sales in 2013 show Nissan Leaf still No 1

There has been considerable growth in the number of electric vehicles (EVs) on the road today, a 2013 electrified vehicle European sales report suggests.

In the report obtained by EVObsession, sales figures show a total of 66,454 electric-powered vehicles were sold in Europe last year, with almost two-thirds of that comprising 100pc EV vehicles.

One of the world’s most popular EVs, the Nissan Leaf, remained the highest selling car of its kind in Europe, with a sales total of 10,885 or 16pc of the overall market share.

Second on the list saw a European entrant into its own chart, the Renault Zoe, launched in 2012, selling 8,858 cars last year, making up 13pc of the market.

Both the Leaf and Zoe are considered the frontrunners in terms of popularising EVs to the mass market and is being pushed by a number of European governments in a bid to reach their 2020 targets for a more sustainable continent.
