Nissan Leaf #1 in growing market

The Irish PEV passenger car market surged 131% Year-on-year, to 215 units in January, a new all-time record.

The Nissan Leaf was the best-selling model last month, by registering 95 units, with the surprising Hyundai Ioniq Electric reaching Second Place, with 69 units, while in Third we had the BMW 330e, with 18 sales.

An interesting fact is that this significant sales growth came from the BEV side (168 units now vs 48 a year ago), while PHEVs remained flat (47 vs 45).
