Nissan Leaf accounted for 470 units followed by 9 units of BMW I3, Mercedes B class 9 and 1 Tesla unit.
SUVs recorded 787 units, a decline from 797 units recorded in October and the 1369 units registered in the same month the previous year.
Mitsubishi stood out as the SUV market leader with 235 units (Outlander - 167 units, Montero - 58) and was closely followed by Nissan with 166 units (Xtrail hybrids) and Toyota with 134 units (Prado - 107, Harrier - 24).
