Tesla leading the electric vehicle charge across Europe – Automotive Blog

Tesla Model Y


The Tesla Model Y and Model 3 were the most popular new pure electric vehicles sold in Europe in 2022, according to new data from automotive researchers JATO Dynamics.

According to the US firm, more than 137,000 Tesla Model Y SUVs were registered, as opposed to 91,500 Model 3 saloons.

The Model Y’s success came at the expense of the Model 3 because SUVs, which now make up 51% of all EV registrations, are becoming more and more popular.

The Volkswagen Group (which includes Volkswagen, Skoda, and Cupra) maintained its lead in Europe’s 100% electric car market with 349,200 registered vehicles and a total market share of 22.4%.

Tesla was ranked second in the EV rankings (232,018), and the Stellantis, which includes cars from Peugeot, Citroen, Fiat, Vauxhall, and Opel, was ranked third (230,383).

A total of 29% more 100% electric car registrations were made in 2022 than in 2021. A new peak for the European car market: 1.56 million vehicles.

In fact, more than 14 out of every 100 newly registered cars in Europe last year had an electric-only drivetrain.

Norway (79%), Sweden (33%), the Netherlands (23%), and Denmark (21%) were the top four countries by EV market share, with Finland, Switzerland, and Germany coming in last with 18% each.

The last factor is that, compared to 2021, sales of ICEs (conventional internal combustion engine cars) accounted for 51.4% of all registrations in 2022.
