2012 EV sales

The 3rd quarter 2012 UK registration data just became available.

Total on the road for Q3 2012:

Renault Fluence Z.E. 60
Renault Kangoo Z.E. 223
Renault Twizy 226

Peugeot iON + Citroen C-Zero + Mitusbishi i-MIEV 563

Nissan Leaf 1027

Disappointing numbers.

I've counted the iOn, C-Zero and i-MIEV together since they are the same car. But it is the iON that is responsible for the big jump in registrations. Peugeot iON numbers spiked up after a few dealers started offering the car on heavily discounted business leases. Very few went at the initial crazy high 488/month. Fleetdrive-electric is still advertising contract-hire at 149/month+VAT That price includes the battery. Are they dumping existing inventory before Zoe arrives?

The Fluence Z.E. continues to not sell. I wouldn't be surprised if Renault discontinued the RHD Fluence.

The Kangoo Z.E. fares somewhat better. Airports account for a good chunk of UK fleet sales. To my surprise there were nearly as many LL21 Maxi vans as ML20 vans. The LL21s could be the 5 seat crew or window vans.

The Kangoo Z.E. is too expensive. Contract-hire for a zero-option ML20 Van with the battery is about 370/month + VAT. 444/month? For a van? If Renault offered the van for 199/month including VAT I'd be driving one.

Unfortunately for the purpose of AN's sales charts, Ford does not break down the plug-in v. regular hybrid C-Max. But here in the States, those are the only versions we get. So it qualifies for my chart.
