Plug-in electric car sales in Sweden – October 2016 (data source: EV Sales Blog)
Sweden is one of the largest plug-in electric car markets by market share. In recent months, thanks to strong demand for plug-in hybrids, sales have exceeded 3%, and in October reached 3.4%.
Monthly EV sales now typically hit the 4-digit mark in the country, and after 10 months a total of 10,873 have been registered. That's already more than the 9,039 from all of 2015.
As one would expect from the rather colder climate of Sweden, plug-in hybrids are at the forefront of sales...at least until more affordable long range electric vehicle solutions are available.
Overall just six models made up more than 70% of sales - and of those, only 2 all-electric vehicles make the list at #5 and #6.
- Volkswagen Passat GTE - 3,359
- Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV - 1,276
- Volvo V60 PHEV - 981
- Volvo XC90 T8 - 764
- Nissan LEAF - 702
- Tesla Model S - 655
