New passenger car registrations in Spain decreased in June by 8% year-over-year to 90,990. During the first half of the year, new registrations decreased by 12% year-over-year to 415,575.
The plug-in electric car segment is in better shape because it still notes some growth, but the rate of growth significantly slowed down in the two recent months to less than 10% year-over-year.
According to EnergyTransition Fan, some 7,464 new plug-in electric cars were registered in June (up 6% year-over-year), which is 8.2% of the market. The majority of plug-ins happen to be plug-in hybrids.
Hopefully, the plug-in market will be able to maintain growth in the coming months. With resumed production at many European plants, there is a big chance for that.
Stats for the month:
- BEVs: 3,191 (up 23%, at 3.5% market share)
- PHEVs: 4,273 (down 4%, at 4.7% market share)
- Total: 7,464 (up 6%, at 8.2% market share)
So far this year, more than 38,000 new passenger plug-ins were registered in Spain. Most are plug-in hybrids.
