Only 2,7 percent was the market share of electric and hybrid vehicles in the first quarter of this year in the USA. That is just a fraction higher than in 04/2011, when EVs like the Volt and Leaf made their first market entry, claiming a share of 2.5 percent. Across the pond, things look a little different. In Norway, the 50,000 EV has been sold as expected. The Model S will thus be the last subsidised EV for now, if the parliament does not decide to continue its highly successful incentive programme next month.
