West Europe Electric car market history and forecast 2017

The take-up rate for pure electric cars in Europe, excluding plug-in hybrids, may still be a great deal slower than the industry had earlier expected, but despite the sectorís comparative snailsí pace rate of growth, the electric car industry may draw some comfort from AIDís latest prediction that this yearís electric car market in Western Europe is now forecast to breach the 100,000 level for the very first time, thus setting a new all-time record

The good news according to AIDís latest electric car sales forecast is that this yearís West European electric car registrations (BEVs) are likely to breach the 100,000 level for the very first time. 

The not so good news is that full year West European registrations of electric cars (BEVs) may reach a six-figure total for the first time, but this outwardly heart-warming turnout for the industry still adds up to less than 1 per cent of this yearís regional new car sales at the very best. 

And even that diminutive turnout is flattered a great deal by tiny Norway, where thanks to on-going sweetheart tax deals and a great deal more, just over a fifth of West Europeís BEVs are now sold.
