30.000!

The latest data from the electric vehicle registrations are in, we have had a monstrous december in 2013, breaking through 30.000 electric vehicles! That is almost double the number of november, what happened?

That hockeystick is getting steeper every month.

Almost doubling within a month, four times within a year!

All the reason to be happy, but it is also logical this incredible surge happened. As per the 1st of january some attractive tax breaks have dropped while others have become less. In order to maximize the benefit, people had to get their electric car before the end of the year. Still, this is impressive to see. I expect a lower uptake the next few months as some registrations have been done months earlier now.

Also an impressive growth percentage of 147% compared to the previous month.

Top 5 Registered

The top 5 has gone through some changes, a new leader and the introduction of the Model S now becomes visible here even. I'd be interested to see the other data of all the other models before they make it to the top 5 and see how that developped in more detail over time.

The supreme rule of the Opel Ampera is over and the Tesla Model S calls in at spot number five.

A huge stride forward for Mitsubishi with their Outlander and also Volvo did great business last month. Followed by long time favourite the Opel Ampera, then the Prius Plug-In and another new entry for the Model S.
