Ten percent of cars sold in the European Union are electric cars

Of the more than 2.2 million new passenger cars sold in the European Union in the first quarter of this year, 10 percent were equipped with an all-electric powertrain. The share of electric cars has thus nearly doubled compared to the first quarter of last year, according to data from the European Association of Automobile Manufacturers (ACEA).

In the first three months of this year, 2,245,976 new passenger cars were registered in the European Union, 12.3% less than in the first quarter of last year. All-electric cars made up 10 percent of the registration numbers, according to data from ACEA. In the first quarter of this year, 224,145 new electric vehicles were registered, up 53.4 percent over the same period last year. In Romania, sales of all-electric vehicles increased by at least 408 percent to 2,108 units. In France about 43% and in Germany 29.3%.

This means that the electric vehicle outperformed the plug-in hybrid vehicle, which accounts for 8.9 percent. As a result, 5.3 percent fewer new plug-ins were registered in the European Union in the first quarter of this year, although the share increased slightly due to the sharp decline in sales of gasoline and diesel cars. Traditional hybrid models are gaining ground, too. Hybrid models have a 25.1 percent share in the registration numbers, which means that the share of hybrid cars has increased by four percentage points.

Cars with regular petrol and diesel engines still account for more than half of new passenger cars registered in the EU (52.8 percent). Gasoline-engine cars accounted for 808,039 registrations in the European Union in the first quarter of this year, which is 36 percent. However, this share decreased by about 5 percentage points compared to the first quarter of last year. Diesel engines also lose their power. In the first quarter of this year, 378,000 auto-igniters were registered, which is 33.2 percent less than last year. The share of diesel engines in the registration numbers fell 5.3 percentage points to 16.8 percent. At least 44.1 percent fewer auto-ignition devices were recorded in France. In Italy, Spain and Germany, declines of 39.2 percent, 30.8 percent and 20.2 percent, respectively, were recorded.
