New statistics: More rechargeable cars than petrol and diesel combined

55 percent of all newly registered cars are rechargeable. 60 percent of electric cars are bought by private individuals.

The Volkswagen ID.4 was the most registered electric car in September 2022. Volkswagen was also the biggest brand overall during the month.

Under september 2022 22,048 new cars were registered, which is three percent less than the previous year. So far during the year, twelve percent fewer cars have been registered than in the corresponding period last year.

The explanation for the reduction is both a component shortage and lower demand due to a deteriorating economy. Mobility Sweden predicts that 285,000 new passenger cars will be registered during the year.

In September, the proportion was new rechargeable cars 55 percent, of which electric cars accounted for 35 percent and plug-in hybrids for 20 percent. The most common electric car is the Volkswagen ID.4 and the most common among plug-in hybrids is the Kia Ceed SW.

Breaking the trend: More private electric cars

In 2021, there was a trend break for electric cars. At that time, the number of private individuals who bought electric cars exceeded the number of company and benefit cars. In 2022, the proportion of privately registered electric cars is 60 percent.

A great explanation to the change is that it has become less advantageous to have a benefit car due to higher taxes. Therefore, more people choose to have a private car.

– In order for the electrification trend with the high proportion of electric cars to continue, it is important that the new government supports the transition with long-term policy instruments similar to Bonus-malus, says Mattias Bergman, at Mobility Sweden.

Most common brand in September 2022, Volkswagen was followed by Volvo and Kia.
