Hey! Remember me? I'm still here...

VW e-Golf #1 in July

The German PEV passenger car market continues on the right track in July, having registered 9,233 units, with BEVs (+136% YoY) pushing the market up, as PHEVs keep stuttering (+6% in July, returning YTD numbers out of the red), with all-electrics two thirds of plugin registrations, while the PEV Share was 2.8% in July, with BEVs alone hitting 1.8%, keeping the 2019 plugin share at 2.6% (1.7% BEV).

After winning the monthly Best Seller award for the last time in October, the veteran VW e-Golf managed to win last month trophy, and with a record performance to boot, as the 1,007 registrations were the first time the German EV scored a four digit performance.

It seems Volkswagen's current bread and butter plugin model still has some aces up its sleeve... 

Another German model hitting record results was the BMW i3, that scored 967 registrations, allowing it to reach Silver last month, ahead of its rival Renault Zoe, that moved 910 units, which is still an impressive performance for a model getting ready to receive significant changes. With the current one clocking regular 1.000/month performances, how high will the heavily revised Zoe go? 1,500? 2,000? Ladies and gents, please place your bets...

In 5th place we have the Audi e-Tron, that scored 530 units, its best result so far, surpassing its ICE sibling Q7 (319 units) and selling at the same pace as the other Audi mammoth, SUV, the Q8 (582). 

Will the Belgian-built Audi be able to reach the pace of the current sales leader, the BMW X5 (1,210 units last month)? One can only dream...

If the top positions didn't had any changes, the leadership race became a little bit clearer, with the Renault Zoe winning precious ground over the Tesla Model 3, and assuming the generation change is done without major hiccups by Renault, the French hatchback is now favorite to renew the 2018 Models title, while the #3 BMW i3 still has a (remote) chance to aspire for the leadership.

Outside the podium we have the #4 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, with enough advantage over the ones behind it to start thinking about finding place in the trophy room for the Best Selling PHEV and SUV statues.

The #8 Audi e-Tron is just 6 units behind the #7 Smart Fortwo EV, and with the current mommentum, it wouldn't be surprising to see the German CUV reach #6 in a few months.

In the full-size category, the race is on between the #11 Mercedes E300e/de twins and the #10 BMW 530e, with the Merc reducing the Bimmer advantage to just 221 units, and this despite the BMW nameplate a new record performance (432 units), to what the rival responded with the second best result ever (464 units) for a plugin E-Class.

Interestingly, the performance from the 530e was just one in four(!) record results made by German nameplates (the others were the BMW i3, VW e-Golf and Audi e-Tron) last month. The Empire Strikes Back?

In the lower positions of the ranking, the Jaguar i-Pace (finally!) reached the Top 20, with the British Sports-CUV becoming the 13th BEV in the ranking, while the Porsche Panamera PHEV climbed one position, to #16.

Outside the ranking, we should highlight the Tesla Model X performance, that delivered 78 units last month, its best first-month-of-quarter performance in a year, allowing it to reduce the distance to the Top 20 to just 134 units, while the Mercedes EQC is still in launch mode, having registered 74 units last month.

In the brands ranking, BMW (20%, up 1%) is the leader, with Tesla (12%, down 1%) running for the 2nd spot, with the #3 Renault (11%, down 1%).

Outside the podium, we have Mitsubishi (9%) recovering ground to the medalists, while Volkswagen and Hyundai, both with 7% share, are still far away from the medal positions.
