|The shark-eyed Fusion is starting to see #4 in its sights...|
Another good sales month for plug-ins in the US, with 7.583 units sold, the second best performance this year, rising the EV share to 0,514%.
The big news is the recovery of the Nr.1 spot by the Nissan Leaf, scoring a second best sales month at 2.138 sales and relegating the Model S to #2, down to 1.800 sales, already preparing itself for the first sales in Europe.
From this summer on, the Model S sales will be divided by several countries and with the production constraints in Tesla's production line, US sales should be limited from now on to some 1.000 units per month, so both the Nissan Leaf and the Chevrolet Volt could surpass it during this year, but even if it does end in third, it's still a commendable position considering it costs twice as much as the direct competition.
Outside the podium, there's another record month for the Fusion Energi (416 units), just 34 units behind its brethren Ford C-Max and closing in at #4 position held by the Prius Plug-In, and there's also the arrival of the 3rd Gen Smart Fortwo ED, now available to the general public and looking to collect a Top 10 spot in the coming months.
