Europe leads the way in electric cars

We have the fastest growth, while the US is clearly lagging behind.

There are more and more well-known names in the field of electromobility, it is typical that we recently wrote that Xiaomi is also working on its own solution. Now, the achievements of the larger regions have been compared, and Europe is doing very well in the competition.

The Pew Research Center has published its own detailed survey, in which, of course, the most important American data for them was highlighted, but it is clear from this that our continent is in the first place in the competition. Last year, a total of roughly 3 million new electric cars were sold worldwide, most of them in Europe, followed by the huge Chinese market, with the United States only in third place, followed by other countries (Canada). , Brazil, etc.) followed. Incidentally, plug-in hybrids and fuel cell solutions were included in the electrical category, so the above ranking came out, but perhaps more importantly, while electric models accounted for 10 percent of total sales in Europe last year, 5% in China. It was 7 percent, compared to just 2 percent in the U.S.

Most new cars are registered here, with a market share of 10 percent

The European average (which includes Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and the United Kingdom) has apparently been raised by the exceptionally high numbers of the northern, mainly Scandinavian, countries, with Norway at the top of the list with 74.8 per cent, and Iceland follows with 52.4 per cent, but Sweden’s 32.3 per cent rate is not to be underestimated either. In comparison, China’s 5.7 per cent already looks downright low, but Poland’s 0.8 per cent is already absolutely dwarfed by the big ones.

The growth rate in the last 5 years has also been the fastest on our continent, with 60 per cent since 2016, with China at 36 per cent and the US at 17 per cent. New cars sold overseas in the last 3 years accounted for just under 2 percent of the various electrical solutions, and it is clear that U.S. buyers are sticking with gasoline-absorbing monsters and much cheaper conventional models.

Of particular concern is the fact that the network of filling stations is mostly built in large cities, but in the area between metropolises this is still to be seen – among other things, this explains the significant lag.
