Electric car registrations increased rapidly in Romania in 2020


Pure electric cars are gaining ground in Romania: registrations increased in 2020 by 89% compared to the previous year.

According to the Association of Automobile Manufacturers and Importers (APIA), in 2020 2,846 new purely electric cars were registered in Romania. In 2019, their number was only 1,506 units.

The increase was supported by the subsidy of almost 10,000 euros offered by the government for the purchase of a new electric car.

The list of electric cars purchased by Romanians in 2020 also includes models from Skoda, Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz and Tesla.

The number of hybrid models registered in Romania also increased spectacularly (by 158%). Thus, the two categories – electric and plug-in hybrid – reached a combined market share of 7.1% in 2020.

The market share of electric cars will continue to grow in Romania after the Dacia Spring model will be available locally.
