Plug-In Hybrids Pushes EV Market Share In Sweden Above 3%
Sweden is one of the largest plug-in electric car markets by market share. In recent months, thanks to strong demand for plug-in hybrids, sales have exceeded 3%, and in October reached 3.4%.
Monthly EV sales now typically hit the 4-digit mark in the country, and after 10 months a total of 10,873 have been registered. That’s already more than the 9,039 from all of 2015.
As one would expect from the rather colder climate of Sweden, plug-in hybrids are at the forefront of sales…at least until more affordable long range electric vehicle solutions are available.
Overall just six models made up more than 70% of sales – and of those, only 2 all-electric vehicles make the list at #5 and #6.
- Volkswagen Passat GTE – 3,359
- Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV – 1,276
- Volvo V60 PHEV – 981
- Volvo XC90 T8 – 764
- Nissan LEAF – 702
- Tesla Model S – 655
Also of note: The Tesla Model X stands 12th overall with 174 sales this year, 34 of them in October (good for 7th).
