Electric car sales Europe August 2016 AID Newsletter


Electric car sales in Western Europe, excluding PHEVs (Plug-In-Hybrids), fell for the fourth month in a row in August posting a 1.2 per cent dip from the same month last year. Without France, which saw a 38.9 per cent sales gain, West Europeís August electric car sales (BEVs) fell 6.7 per cent widening the sales shortfall to date to 6.1 per cent, according to AIDís exclusively compiled data

Sales of battery electric cars (BEVs) in Western Europe, in a month that saw an 8 per cent in rise in overall car sales, fell by a contrasting 1.2 per cent in August. 

Thatís the fourth straight month of decline, giving the worst underlying trend rate since the start of this year, according to exclusive figures released by AID

Another reflection of the sectorís poor underlying performance to date, the sales share going to electric cars in August eased back to 0.78 per cent compared with a slightly higher 0.86 per cent during the same month last year, according to AID figures.
