Electric Car Sales In Netherlands, Canada, & Ireland (January 2014)
February 12th, 2014 by Zachary Shahan
Following up on my Norway, Sweden, and Denmark January 2014 electric car sales reports, here are reports for the Netherlands, Ireland, and Canada. For other January 2014 electric car sales or 2013 electric car sales, see the stories linked on the bottom of this article.
Netherlands EV Sales
Clearly, the Dutch like their PHEVs.
Take note that due to an important EV inventive expiring at the end of 2013, there was a huge rush of orders in December. Over 9,000 electrified cars & SUVs were sold in December, including nearly 5,000 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVs. So, January sales were hit pretty hard with the hangover. Things should slowly get back to “normal” in the coming months.
Canada EV Sales
Oh, Canada—you can do better than thus, can’t you? (p.s. Congrats to the Chevy Volt for holding steady at #1.)
Ireland EV Sales
So… Ireland doesn’t have much going on yet. Basically just the Nissan Leaf. Let’s hope the green country gets more EVs soon.
That said, if you’re an Irish reader, you could be the first Irish person to own a handful of great EV models! Put your name in the history books. 😀
