The only way is up
The plug-in electric car market in Europe expanded in February by a healthy 36% to almost 32,700, according to estimations provided by the EV Sales Blog.
A similar pace of growth accompanies us for the past five months, although the all-electric car category increased by 75% to over 21,000 and two-thirds of total volume, while plug-in hybrids decreased 3%. Total market share stands at 2.8%.
Assuming the growth will continue or even accelerate in March, we now expect an all-time record of more than 50,000 plugs-ins sold in a single month!
