Again, that site makes me wonder why the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is not available in the U.S.
Yeah, here's an IEVS article quoting ev-salesblog on Swedish sales:http://insideevs.com/plug-in-hybrids-pu ... n-above-3/Plug-In Hybrids Pushes EV Market Share In Sweden Above 3%Sweden is one of the largest plug-in electric car markets by market share. In recent months, thanks to strong demand for plug-in hybrids, sales have exceeded 3%, and in October reached 3.4%. . . .
As one would expect from the rather colder climate of Sweden, plug-in hybrids are at the forefront of sales…at least until more affordable long range electric vehicle solutions are available. . . .
1. Volkswagen Passat GTE – 3,359
2. Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV – 1,276
3. Volvo V60 PHEV – 981
4. Volvo XC90 T8 – 764
5. Nissan LEAF – 702
6. Tesla Model S – 655
Model X comes in at #12. The bolded section raises the question, why is Norway different from Sweden, with BEVs taking a bigger share? It used to be that BEVs got much bigger subsidies there than PHEVs did, but I believe that's changed.
