European EV registrations grow 35.6% in second quarter of 2019

News

In the second quarter of 2019, the EU new-car market shifted further towards petrol vehicles.

Info

Petrol now represents nearly 60% of all new passenger car registrations, while demand for diesel continued to fall during the second quarter. Electrically-chargeable vehicles (ECV) accounted for 2.4% of total new car sales across the region, while all alternatively-powered vehicles (APV) combined made up 9.2% of the EU market.

During the second quarter, registrations of alternatively-powered cars in the European Union showed strong growth (+28.5%). Some 98,553 electrically-chargeable vehicles (ECV) were registered, up 35.6% compared to last year. Sales of battery electric vehicles almost doubled (+97.7%), while demand for plug-in hybrids declined in the second quarter of 2019 (-13.6%).

Hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) posted strong results (+38.2%), with 210,348 units sold from April to June this year. However, registrations of LPG and natural gas cars remained flat in the second quarter, mainly due to a sharp drop in demand for natural gas vehicles (NGV).

Each of the five largest EU car markets saw registrations of alternatively-powered vehicles increase significantly. Germany (+60.7%) recorded the highest percentage gains, boosted by strong demand for hybrid electric vehicles, followed by Spain (+35.8%) and France (+20.0%).
