Top 3 Electric Models In 10 Countries With Highest EV Market Share

The top 10 countries with the highest share of new car sales coming from 100% electric vehicles are featured below. Additionally, I’m listing the top 3 fully electric models in each of those countries and their share of the overall plugin vehicle market.

The data and charts come from EAFO except in the case of one country (which will be obvious), and the sales used for the rankings come from the period January–April 2021.

In case you want to take a guess at what the top countries are and what the top models in each of those countries are, I’m sticking an image in first to block the view.

  1. Peugeot e-208 (7.3% of plugin vehicle market)
  2. Tesla Model 3 (7.2%)
  3. Renault ZOE (5.9%)

So, the Tesla Model 3 won 1st place four times, the Volkswagen ID.4 twice, the Volkswagen ID.3 once, the Volkswagen e-Up! once, the Peugeot e-208 once, and the Wuling Mini EV once.

Also, the Tesla Model 3 made it into the top 3 the highest number of times — in 9 out of the top 10 countries. The only market where it wasn’t in the top 3 was, unsurprisingly, Germany.
