New passenger electric vehicle market share in Europe 2018, by country

Market share of newly registered passenger electric vehicles in selected European countries in 2018

by N. Sönnichsen, last edited Aug 22, 2019
New passenger electric vehicle market share in Europe 2018, by country Norway recorded the greatest market share of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs). The Scandinavian country far outranked its European neighbors, with PEVs accounting for nearly half of all newly registered passenger cars. Of these, battery electric vehicles made up the greatest share at 30.2 percent. European countries were not the only ones left in the dust, Norway raced ahead of any other country in the world, making it the global leader in terms of electric mobility on roads.

Norway’s electric mobility surge

Norway’s jump in electric mobility is due to the country’s high car import tolls being lifted for electric vehicles, with registration taxes also waived. Such incentives make an electric vehicle comparatively cheaper to the purchase of a combustion engine powered car. As of 2018, there were 200,192 electric passenger cars on Norwegian roads.

Leading EV models

According to a ranking provided by Dataforce, Nissan Leaf was the leading electric car model sold in Europe. In 2018, nearly 41,000 units were purchased by European residents, a little more than the second entry, Renault Zoe.
