Europe's February BEV market builds on positive start to the year

West European BEV electric car sales mix 2017 Europe

Already two months through the current year and a notable build-up of steam in Germany, and in particular across some of West Europe’s smaller markets, February’s somewhat hotter than expected one-third jump in electric car (BEV) registrations gives rise to the cautious but nevertheless promising view that West Europe’s BEV market still tells an upbeat tale

First reactions to this promising upturn in underlying demand couldn’t fail but trigger optimism in BEV industry quarters.

Latest AID compiled data, barring the possibility that this year’s promising start is little more than a momentary blip, supports the view that this year’s West Europe’s BEV market remains on track to better last year’s 0.68% sales share.

For all those engaged in Europe’s long-struggling electric car market (BEVs) the current year began on a distinctly auspicious note.

At first glance, February’s one-third jump in BEV registrations looked encouraging.

But it took only a quick second glance to conclude that February’s surge may not after all be the sought-after reflection of a true underlying upturn in consumers’ BEV demand, and in consequence may be in danger of fizzling out again as quickly as it began.
