Growth dynamics slowed down, but still almost one in 10 new cars sold was a plug-in.
After period of about two years of double-digit year-over-year growth of plug-in electric car sales, Sweden slowed down in July and August.
Past month, 2,487 new passenger plug-in car registrations was enough only for a 4% increase, although the market share still remains strong 9% (11% for the year).
Considering that diesel sales are down 30% (August), Sweden is clearly navigating towards more environmenataly friendly vehicles.
