Let's see where the relative demand for plug-in hybrid and all-electric cars is the highest in Europe.

The average market share of new passenger plug-in electric cars in Europe - the European Union and EFTA (Norway, Switzerland, Iceland) - increased in 2019 to 3.53% (from 2.47% in 2018).

In this post we will compare plug-in market share in 27 countries, using available registration data from the European Automobile Manufacturers Association.

The average for the European Union is 3.0% (compared to 2.0% a year ago). Four countries above 10% highly inflated the result. In 16 countries, the share exceeded 1%.

The top countries are:

  1. Norway - 55.9%
  2. Iceland - 17.8%
  3. Netherlands - 15.0%
  4. Sweden - 11.4%
  5. Finland - 6.89%
