New sales record for used electric cars – combustion cars reverse

Petrol and diesel cars lost in the Swedish used market during the third quarter of the year. At the same time, sales of used electric cars increased by more than 150 percent, recent statistics show.

The second-hand market slowed down in during the third quarter of the year, according to figures produced by the statistics company Vroom, which the car broker Kvdbil has read. However, the second-hand market remains at historically high levels.

It was petrol and diesel cars that were mainly sold less during the period; Compared with the same period last year, 30,000 fewer of them were sold. In percentage terms, petrol and diesel cars decreased by 9.7 and 5.7 per cent, respectively, in the Swedish used market, says Daniel Odsberg, sales manager at Kvdbil, in a statement.

– Last year’s third quarter was strongly affected by the effects of the corona pandemic when we saw a sharp increase in demand for private vehicles at the same time as the automotive industry had difficulty delivering. Now that the situation is starting to stabilize, we are getting a certain decline that is expected.

However, electric cars increased by more than 150 percent while the number of plug-in hybrids sold doubled. In real terms, these are just over 2,200 more electric cars and 4,100 more plug-in hybrids.

– It is an all time high for rechargeable cars, both in the number of vehicles sold and in sales growth. The interest is enormous and the rapid increase in new registrations paves the way for new records in the near future, says Daniel Odsberg.
