Far and away, the Swiss plug-in vehicle (PEV) leader was the Model 3, which had 29% of PEV market share. That means it had ~1.6% of the overall auto market in Switzerland all by itself, and it put the Model 3 at #4 in the overall auto market in the country, only trailing the Skoda Octavia, Volkswagen Tiguan, and Volkswagen Golf

The French plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market registered a record 7,250 units in December, +28% year over year (YoY), a new all time record.

Audi USA Sales In 2014–2019 — Hurt Significantly By Tesla Or Not?

January 11th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

I recently decided to take a closer look at BMW USA sales over the past 6 years in order to try to examine how much BMW was being hurt by Tesla's popularity in the United States. Part of the reason for doing that is that recent Bloomberg research highlighted BMW as the auto brand most hurt by and most vulnerable to Tesla
