Norway stands out with 45% market share for all-electric cars. The second best country didn't yet exceed 10%.

As some of our readers would like to see how well the all-electric car sales look like in Europe in comparison to the overall market, here we have an additional comparison of BEV market share.

The data is for the first half of 2019 and include 27 countries in the European Union or EFTA (Norway, Switzerland, Iceland).

The average for all the 27 countries is 2.0% (1.53% in EU), compared to 1.0% year ago (almost 0.8% in EU).

In total, 14 out of 27 countries are above 1% market share and almost all noted an increase in BEV market share year-over-year.
