Nissan Leaf, at this yearís 1st quarter stage, still leads West Europeís tiny market for electric cars, but the Leaf, judged from recent developments in the regionís still low-charged electric car arena, could soon face the humiliation of being bumped off its already shaky throne by a model built by someone, who until fairly recently, has never built a car, let alone a high-tech electric version

This first quarter, Nissanís Leaf, with 3,730 registrations, was the best-selling electric car in the whole of Western Europe, thanks in no small measure to its popular following in Norwayís still humming electric car market. 

According to figures collected and monitored exclusively by AID every month, the Leafís first quarter share of West Europeís electric car market touched the 30 per cent mark. 

The second-placed Tesla Model S, already hard on its heels, took a further 24 per cent.

And that in turn was followed by BMWís i3 and Renaultís ZOE with a respective 18 and 10 per cent first quarter segment share, AIDís own figures reveal.

Norway, by a very long stretch, remains the Leafís top market in Europe. 

Thatís driven home by data showing that so far this year some 1,559 Leafs were driven from Norwegian dealer premises to customersí drives. 

And it is here, given latest tell-tale developments, where the future leadership of Europeís electric car market will likely come to a head.
