That’s up from an already impressive 25% in 2019. In fact, fully electric vehicles alone accounted for 18% of auto sales in Iceland in February, according to EV Volumes. As we have seen in several other northerly European countries, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a particularly popular plug-in vehicle. Another top performer in similar climates, the Audi e-tron, is right on the Outlander’s tale. The next three models in the top 5 are routinely popular fully electric vehicles, the classic Nissan Leaf, the stealth Volkswagen e-Golf, and the 2019 CleanTechnica Car of the Year winner, the Hyundai Kona EV. Admittedly, this is a small market with not quite 350,000 people living in Iceland. Nonetheless, the relative numbers — the market share — is so compelling that this is one of the biggest EV stories in the world.
