WESTERN EUROPE BEV ELECTRIC CAR SALES TRENDSNovember’s BEV market sees 6th fall in past 7-months

The 6th fall in the past seven months, with November’s West European electric car sales (BEVs) falling by 1.4 per cent, gives credence to the downbeat view that European consumers’ appetite for latest electric cars, despite on-going sweetheart BEV ownership conditions and tempting financial purchase/lease incentives, remains a great deal weaker than the industry had hoped.
