W. EUROPE | ELECTRIC CAR MARKET | AID EXCLUSIVE
March electric car sales in Western Europe reach highest total for any month on record

Western Europe electric car sales history 2012- 2016

Electric car sales in Western Europe, excluding plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) last month reached the highest-ever level for any month on record, but the rate of growth slowed sharply to the lowest level for sixteen months

AID’s exclusively compiled sales numbers show that West Europe’s electric car sales in March rose 12.2 per cent to a highest-ever 11,935 units, boosted once more by a more than doubling in registrations in France’s heavily subsidised electric car market.

Compared with last year’s very low base, strong percentage gains in some of the region’s middle ranked markets such as Austria and Belgium for instance helped compensate for a sudden setback in Norway, where electric car sales in March plunged by almost a quarter. 

In Germany’s still totally unsubsidised market, electric car sales in March fell 9 per cent and rose by just 2.1 per cent to 2,689 during this year’s first quarter. 

This could be attributable in part to German consumers postponing their electric car purchases in anticipation of a likely €5,000 electric car subsidy from the middle of this year
