Sweden: marketshare for plug-in vehicles nears 25%

26 maart 2020

In Sweden, electric cars and plug-in hybrids achieved a market share of 24.3 per cent in February. The background to the new car registration boom is primarily a change in the Swedish subsidy system, which came into force at the turn of the year.

Around 6.4 per cent of all Swedish new cars in February 2020 were BEV (1,430 registrations), and about 18 per cent were plug-in hybrids (4,027 listings). The increase compared to February 2019 was around 59 per cent for electric cars and 112 per cent for PHEVs.

In January this year, 7.1 per cent of new cars were battery electric passenger cars (1,269 new registrations), and 23.1 per cent were plug-in hybrids (4,113 new listings). The increase compared to January 2019 was 15 per cent for BEVs and 160.8 per cent for PHEVs.
