With an unprecedented choice of Electric Vehicles and rocketing sales during 2014, what can we expect from the EV market in 2015?

Nissan remains the market leader thanks to its star performer, the LEAF. During 2014, 14, 658 registrations were recorded in Europe giving Nissan 26% market share.

Having dominated the European market, does Nissan need to start looking over its shoulder? Renault is catching up fast – its ZOE sold 11,227 units in Europe during 2014 with market share rising to 20%. The new battery options available from Renault could help attract those wanting green driving on a budget.

But what about 2015?

The year ahead will see the launch of even more EV models. VW has started the year in style, launching the Golf GTE with a blaze of publicity and the promise that this model will be available at every dealership. (Read the What Car review.)

Next Green Car’s top ten highlights for 2015 low emission launches is:

  1. VW Twin-Up! (plug in hybrid)
  2. Smart Fortwo (petrol)
  3. Skoda Fabia (diesel)
  4. Kia Soul (electric)
  5. Mazda Skyactiv-D (diesel)
  6. Mercedes-Benz B-Class (electric)
  7. VW Passat GTE (hybrid)
  8. Volvo XC90 (hybrid)
  9. Toyota Mirai FCV (hydrogen)
  10. Tesla Model X (electric)

An interesting range! Full details are here.

Many models are expected to be available in time for the new registration plate in March.

There’s little doubt that EVs are becoming more popular, with the government’s £5,000 grant helping to make the affordable choices.
