VW E-Golf vs. Nissan Volt....for the first time, the E-Golf has outsold the Nissan Volt during early 2015, but only in Europe. The E-golf sold just over 2,000 units vs. the Volt's 1600. Meanwhile, in the US, the E-Golf sold about 500 sold Jan-March 2015, and 4000 Nissan Leaf. First, I'm surprised that so many people are buying Nissan Leaf in the US. The US's greater spaces and less friendly infrastructure means that it's not as practical as in Europe. Could the difference in sales also mean that Europe prefers VW to Nissan? I'm sure that no ads or really any promotion of the E-Golf has helped sales either. I've never seen any promo or even mention of the E-Golf by VW. In fact, if I wasn't aware of cars and hybrids, I wouldn't even know the E-Golf existed. Therefore, maybe greater advertising or awareness in Europe has produced better sales? Try advertising VW!
