By Vassilis Sarimbalidis

Very interesting are the facts about mix of fuel chosen by those who bought a new car in Hellas τον January and according to his official data Association of Car Dealers Importers.

First in preference is gasoline

The most popular fuel remains the petrol at a rate of 48.2%. However, the decline it presented is interesting as in the corresponding period last year (January 2020) the percentage was 58.3%.

Important rise presented the cars equipped with hybrid technology and they were the ones who took the second place with a percentage of 22.10%, from 11.70% they held in January 2020.

Cars combining internal combustion engines and electric motors were the second preferred (in the photo the Ford Explorer combining a 3.0-liter gasoline engine with an electric motor).

Third is diesel

The third option was cars with engines diesel and with a percentage that reached 21.80%. In the case of diesel cars, the decline reached 5.9% compared to January last year.

21.8% of new owners acquired a vehicle with a diesel engine (in the photo the Skoda Octavia 4x4 with a diesel engine with a capacity of 2.0 liters).

Increase in … current

Of interest are the vehicles that use either purely for their movement drift or a combination of an internal combustion engine and an electric motor.

The increase in rankings was significant, as from 0.60% in January 2020 they reached 5%, an increase of 4.4%.

The 5 out of 100 cars sold in January are plugged in (in the photo the purely electric Fiat 500e).

Natural gas and LPG

Beyond that the versions with natural gas reached 1.7% (from 1.8% in 2020), while vehicles with LPG increased by one percentage point, as from 0.20% they caught 1.20% of the total car market in January 2021.

The registrations of cars that use natural gas and LPG as fuel reached 2.9%.

Cruise change …

In general we observe a change of course towards hybrid technology but also Financial incentives for electric cars have increased the share of this category … electromobility due to three key factors. The first concerns trend of factories for the production of such versions with the presentation of constantly new models.

The second reason has to do with taxation, which is low for such cars and concerns the registration fee but also the fact that it helps significantly in not being burdened with corporate tax.

Finally the financial incentives of the government are what play their role as the discounts on new cars even exceed 5,000 euros.

Hybrid technology is constantly gaining ground ...
