Electric car sales broke records at the start of the year1. april 2022
With sales up 77%, electric cars experienced a real boom in Europe in February.
While the public authorities have thermal cars in their sights and now want to do everything to see them disappear, manufacturers now have no choice but to expand their electric range if they want to survive. Indeed, while theEuropean Union already punishes brands whose ranges emit too much CO2, it wants to go even further, by purely and simply banning the sale of internal combustion models by 2035. This explains why manufacturers have more and more trendy alternatives in their catalog. An increasingly wide choice, which translates into an increase in sales.
Record electric sales
And the least we can say is that this engine is enjoying growing success with customers, as confirmed by data from Jato Dynamics. According to specialists, no less than 87,400 electric cars were sold in Europe throughout February in Europe, out of 794,600 registrations for all engines combined. A figure up 77%, while connected cars then reached a record market share of 11%.
Unsurprisingly, it is Tesla that remains at the top of sales, while the success of the American brand is well established. Along with the Model 3, the new Model Y is therefore one of the best-selling electric cars in Europe. In 3rd position, we find the small Fiat 500, followed by the Kia e-Niro, whose new generation was unveiled a few months earlier. The Hyndai Ioniq 5 is also doing very well, as are the Volkswagen ID.4, Skoda Enyaq iV and other Kia EV6.
