VW e-Up!

Electric car sales in Western Europe, which in case of AID's data means all-electric cars, grew in June by nearly 80% - from roughly 3,000 to 5,350.

"Healthy-looking underlying consumer demand in Norway, rather than added demand for the newly arrived electric cars from European heavyweights such as BMW and VW, still seen as main driver behind Europe’s outwardly encouraging pick up in electric car demand."

However, the sales increase for Europe is lower - under 50% year over year excluding Norway, where sales went up almost four times! This is still a solid result for Europe though.

This helps to raise average market share from 0.24% in June 2013 to 0.34% (excluding Norway, which exceeds 12%).

After the first six months of 2014, we see more than 29,000 all-electric cars sold in Europe and June's result is above average, so we are looking with optimism at the second half of the year.
