All-electric car sales increased by 19% last month, but plug-in hybrids were down 25%, dragging the plug-in segment into the red again.

europe: plug-in electric car sales at crossroads in july 2022

The European passenger car market continues to struggle as the overall sales decreased again in July.

The plug-in electric car segment is also affected by the challenging market situation – especially the constrained supply of new cars.

According to EV Volumes data, shared by Jose Pontes, over 157,000 new passenger plug-in cars were registered in Europe last month, which is 5% less than a year ago. On the positive side, the market share remains relatively strong at 19%.

The main issue behind the overall drop is a significant 25% decrease of plug-in hybrid car sales, because all-electric cars are actually doing very well, recording a 19 % increase compared to the previous year.

It will be interesting to see whether PHEVs will return to form or gradually fade behind BEVs.

New plug-in car registrations:

  • BEVs: about *91,000 (up 19% year-over-year) and 11% share
  • PHEVs: about *66,000 (down 25% year-over-year) and 8% share
  • Total: 157,694 (down 5% year-over-year) and 19% share

Top plug-in models

In July, the Fiat 500 electric was the most registered electric car model in Europe, with slightly over 5,000 units.

It was followed by three MEB-based models – Volkswagen ID.4, Skoda Enyaq iV and Volkswagen ID.3.

The top five for the month was been completed by the all-new Renault Megane E-Tech.

An interesting thing is that there were only three PHEV models in the top 20 plug-ins. The highest classified PHEV happens to be the Hyundai Tucson PHEV (#14 and 2,608 units).

Noteworthy is that the Cupra Born noted a new record 2,999 units and entered the top 10.
