Electric car sales volume increased by between 47.6 per cent and 93.9 per cent this October in Norway, France, Germany and the UK.
In consequence, for the whole of Western Europe the boost resulted in a near two-thirds sales increase over the same month last year, thus elevating the regionís closely monitored electric car sales share in October to 0.77 per cent.
Thanks at least partly to rumours of an impending German government rethink about the payment of electric car subsidies, this yearís lively electric car sales progress gave rise to the view that before long West Europeís monthly car sales penetration could conceivably touch the 1 per cent level.
That upbeat prediction, apart from the assumption of forthcoming subsidies in Germany, also assumes ongoing purchase and ownership incentives in markets such as Norway, France and the UK for instance.
Thatís the latest upbeat prognosis of AID, which exclusively monitors every month the pulse rate of Europeís electric car
