Europe had its third best month ever in April 2015 in total electric vehicle (EV) sales, with a 40% growth rate as compared against April 2014.
Altogether, roughly 11,500 electric vehicles - this includes plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) - were registered during the month of April in the European market. This means that EVs now make up roughly 1% of the total new vehicle market.
The Renault Zoe and the Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In were nearly tied at the top of the units sold list, with 1,728 units sold and 1,700 units sold, respectively. Following quite a ways behind those two was the Volkswagen e-Golf, with 1,022 units sold. In fourth, the Nissan LEAF was still going strong, with 978 units sold. Tesla sold 856 units during April.
