How these numbers are distributed among the manufacturers, we have on electric car news.not already reported. However, we would like to show below which models were responsible for the strong sales. Above all, compact small cars up to the lower middle class play a decisive role here.

Tesla Model 3 still at the top; Renault ZOE follows closely behind

At the end of February we pointed out that the near-executive sector can be expected to record a strong increase in March. As we remember, the only model in this segment is the Model 3, which usually registers a surge in registrations towards the end of the quarter. This indeed came true. In March alone there were 15.481 of the total of 20.264 registrations recorded in the first quarter of 2020. In April, this number flattened significantly and Tesla brought it to 2 with the Model 3.301 registrations, with a market share of 14.2 percent of the total market (April 2020). In relation to the period January to April 2020, the Model 3 brought it to a total of 22.561 registrations, with a market share of 15.8 percent in Europe‘s e-car market.

The Renault ZOE follows closely behind with 22.109 e-cars in the same period and thus a comparable market share of 15.5 percent. Both models are in a similar range and clearly set themselves apart from third-placed – the VW e-Golf.

Half of the registered e-cars by the end of April was the VW e-Golf, which nevertheless with 12.108 approvals and a market share of around 8.5 percent. Here, too, sales were more linear and were not concentrated at the end of the month. However, a decline in registrations is to be expected in the future. The e-Golf has not been individually configurable since mid-April. In April itself, 1.576 e-Golf can be approved. Behind the first three places there was a shift in the ranking.

In March it was still Peugeot e-208, Nissan Leaf and then Audi e-tron, the order has now reversed. The e-tron from Audi follows in fourth place with 9.419 registrations and 6.6 percent market share. 1.319 of these registrations took place in the fourth month of the year alone. The Nissan Leaf with 8.984 units and a 6.3 percent share of the entire e-car market retains fifth place in the ranking. The Peugeot e-208 with 8.With 764 registrations and a market share of 6.1 percent, it is in sixth place and therefore swaps the ranking with the e-tron.

Let’s now take a look at the final four places in the ranking. The Hyundai Kona follows the e-208 from Peugeot with 6.629 registrations and 4.6 market share. Closely followed by the BMW i3 with 5.908 units and 4.1 percent share of the overall European market. The KIA Niro (4th.687 units / 3.3 percent) and the VW e-Up with 4.254 registered copies, with a market share of 3 percent.
