March sees highest-ever electric car sales total on record

Western Europe Q1 Electric BEV plugin passenger car sales history

Signs that West Europeís electric car market is now in better health than for some time are contained in AIDís latest round-up of the regionís electric car sales

Never before in Europeís comparatively short electric car history have so many pure electric cars (BEVs) been registered as this March. 

The UKís traditional March car registration blitz, this time with a more than one-third jump to a chart-topping 3,141 electric cars, helped elevate West Europeís BEV sales in March by just over a quarter to 15,102 units.

Thatís the highest ever electric car registration total for any month on record. 

But it is still unclear for a great many market observers whether Europeís March BEV blitz was a mere blip or indeed the beginning of a sustainable upward trend. 

In Western Europe, BEV penetration climbed to 0.8 per cent in March from 0.7 per cent during the same month last year. 

Equally upbeat for Europeís BEV industry, over the year-to-date it has also averaged an improved 0.8 per cent, according to AIDís own sales numbers.
