Europe’s July electric car sales disappoint
Little cause for optimism – BMW’s November i3 debut seen as litmus test for sector’s health

July West European Car Sales by market

West Europe’s market for electric cars this July rose 12.7 per cent to some 2,313 units, thanks in large measure to a more than doubling in German registrations, according to exclusively compiled AID statistics.

Disappointingly for the industry, July electric sales in the sixteen West European markets regularly monitored by AID were up on the same month last year in only half the region’s markets. 

Sales in July were down on the same month last year in seven markets, significantly France, but also the Netherlands and Sweden, plus Belgium, Denmark, Finland and Ireland.

Norway’s July electric car sales share

Norway, home to the continent’s most pampered electric car owners, and Europe’s only genuine electric car market to date, saw an 8.6 per cent rise in July sales to some 278 battery-powered cars. 

This helped raise Norway’s July electric car sales share by yet another notch to 2.5 per cent from 2.2 per cent a year ago
