Europe Electric Car Sales Report — March 2017

The European EV market had 29,000 registrations in March, up 30% over the same month last year, making it the third best month ever, only behind the incentive-inflated Decembers of 2015 (34,000) and 2016 (30,000). At this pace, the European EV market is set to reach the 300,000 units milestone by year end. Furthermore the EV market […]

France Electric Car Sales — July 2016

There were around 1,800 electric car (including SUV & van) registrations in France during the month of July 2016, according to the most recent estimates from the EV Sales blog. That represents a roughly 12% year-on-year decrease from July 2015. Despite the apparent slowdown during July 2016, year-to-date totals in France are actually up from 2015 by […]

Germany Electric Car Sales — July 2016

Germany’s electric vehicle incentives are now in full effect. How has this affected sales of plug-in electric cars in the country? Apparently, not all that much, going by the July 2016 sales estimates for the German market that were just released by the EV Sales blog. Electric car sales in July (as compared to July 2015) were actually […]

French EV Sales Numbers For September 2015

The figures for electric vehicle registrations (a proxy for sales) in France during the month of September 2015 are now in. They don’t really provide any surprises, but they’re probably worth taking a look at anyways. Altogether, 2,709 electric vehicles (EVs) were registered in France during the month, meaning that overall sales have barely risen at all as […]

Nissan LEAF #1 In Norway Again

My trip to Florida for the EV Technology & Transportation Summit has delayed this report a bit, but I squeezed it in before the end of the month. The exciting bit of the story is that the Nissan LEAF pulled back in front of the Volkswagen e-Golf in September. For the year through September, though, […]

Volkswagen E-Golf Crushing Competition In Norway

I’ve finally got what seems to be official and complete data on electric car registrations in Norway. Woohoo! (In case you haven’t been following along for years, public data on electric car sales/registrations are not available for all models in practically every large country in the world.) However, last month, a reader tipped me off to an obscure (and […]

Norway Electric Car Sales = 23% Of The Market (Again)

The numbers for Norway electric car sales are “in.” Official numbers are not provided for several models that share a base name with gasmobiles, so José Pontes has made estimates for them, and we’ll just have to go with his numbers. Why a country with such a developed electric car market won’t break out their numbers […]

Europe Electric Car Sales — Zoe #1, Model S #2, Outlander PHEV #3 In June

Europe electric car sales are in for the month of June from Jose Pontes*. It’s a really interesting market. More interesting than North America, China, or any other, imho. Individual country markets in Europe are getting stronger, but they are very different from one another, so the broader continental charts can vary a lot. In […]

Top 25 Electric Cars In Europe (May Registrations Roundup)

I love looking at the Dutch, French, German, and Norwegian electric car sales data, but looking at the bigger European picture is where the real fun is. Throwing everything together from the different countries, it’s hard to have a good idea where they will fall out. Plus, the numbers get bigger. Before we get into […]

Volkswagen e-Golf Is Ecstatic In Norway, Clear #1

After covering France (#2), Netherlands (#3), and Germany (#4) electric car sales, it’s time to cover the big dog — the #1 electric car market in Europe. Norway, here we come! It’s a very different story in each of these markets. Like France, most electric car sales are for fully electric cars. However, unlike France, […]
