The preliminary data by the German analyst Matthias Schmidt leave no doubt: over one fifth of new cars sold in Europe in 2021 are 100% electric.
It is a turning point in the European automotive market, a historical surpass that takes 20% of the market as an estimate factor. In December, in fact, electric cars have exceeded it, whereas diesel vehicles have not reached it.
In December, Europe was protagonist of the record of 176,000 new electric cars registered, amounting to a 6% growth compared to the same period of the previous year. The general crisis of automotive has especially hindered the sales of traditional models that at the end of 2021 stopped at 160,000.
