The European plug-in electric market slowed down in August, but with a 15% increase year-over-year, it still keeps to an upward trend.

In total, more than 35,000 plug-in electric car sales were sold, according to the EV Sales Blog report, which is 3.3% of the overall market.

Two-thirds of the market are BEVs, which also carry all the growth (up 69%, compared to PHEVs down 29%).

After eight months of this year, more than 320,000 new passenger plug-in electric cars were registered (3.0% of the market). There is a strong chance for 500,000 in 2019 with 325,000 to be BEVs.
