However many dozens make up 7,973. That's how many the outgoing model sold in 2018, down from 10,594 in 2017 10,799 in 2016, and 11,662 in 2015. Not too dreadful for an 'ageing' niche, high end...

Jeep's currently the biggest selling of the PSA/FCA brands that operate in China, but its sales are in free fall. From 200,000 in 2017 to 124,000 in 2018, and just under 52,000 so far in 2019.

MINI sells 5x as many cars in Europe than it does in the US, so it stands to reason that they're prioritising the needs of European buyers for their first electric car.

No, a failure to differentiate Chevrolet from Opel/Vauxhall was the culprit. Chevrolet had no USP for European buyers.

If it's excitement you're looking for, Volkswagen isn't the company for you. There was never any chance of them choosing an avant garde, outré styling direction for the I.D. Neo.

Probably to show that they didn't decide to cheap out on the car's body engineering. A quarter window is more expensive than a black plastic triangle.
