In 2017, Electric Car Market Share Nearly Hit 1% In Western Europe

FEB 16 2018 BY MARK KANE 1

After a weaker 2016, year 2017 brought decent growth for all-electric car sales in Western Europe.

With around 137,000 registrations, the market expanded by 50%.

The most important factor is that market share is estimated at 0.96%, and that doesn’t include plug-in hybrids.

With 1.5% share in December, the future for BEVs looks bright in Western Europe.

We are especially satisfied by the fact that even sources usually skeptic of all-electric cars, like EagleAID, now say “another sign that of late Europe’s new car buyers have finally warmed to the real viability of latest BEVs“.

The situation improved a lot when more countries joined the supportive BEV path paved by Norway – especially Germany.

The Nissan Leaf will probably do very well in 2018 and beyond.

Even 2% in 2018 might be very possible?
