European and indeed UK sales are declining also if these data are correct

http://carsalesbase.com/european-car-sales-data/jaguar/jaguar-i-pace/

I think the sales models in Europe aren't quite as "loads of inventory on the lot dealer-focused" as in the US, but even so it does look like its doing the opposite of growing.

Tesla sales of the Model S and X in Europe are also down.   I think this is a global economic effect more than anything else.

However, at the more affordable end of the EV market I think there's a 'Catch22' situation at work,  namely the EVs are too expensive so they don't sell many,  but they need to sell more to be able to lower the price.

Just had a look at the Corsa-e,  base model £30k, top model £33k!   whistlie

The Mini-e looks a bit more nippy and affordable at £25k but they've only managed that by using a  30kw/hr battery (I suspect it's all they could fit in as it's built on the existing ICE 3 door chassis).

The Mini-E is apparently using the i3 drivetrain and battery pack, but yes I guess they probably couldn't physically fit much more in.

The flip side is the Tesla 3 is literally flying off the shelves.
