Previous years plug-in vehicle volumes and market shares 2014 increased steadily until September, then declined abruptly. Q1 in 2015 started promising, but then again continued in previous downwards-sloping trend. Tesla Model S continues the lead with around 100’s sold vehicles each month Q1 2015. Following the Model S we find Leaf and Volt having an interesting sales combat where the winner was Volt with 177 units.
