Sweden’s Plugin EV Revolution Continues To March Forward – CleanTechnica

July saw plugin electric vehicles take 50.1% market share in Sweden, up from 37.6% year on year. Overall auto market volume was 17,834 units, up 6% Yoy, though still some 25% down from pre-pandemic norms for July. The best selling full electric was the Volkswagen ID.4

July’s combined plugin share of 50.1% comprised 26.3% full electrics (BEVs), and 23.8% plugin hybrids. This compares to 15.1% and 22.5%, respectively, in July 2021.

Even with general economic pressures, and supply chain uncertainty, plugins’ substantial energy cost savings, and better long term residual values, still make them relatively attractive compared to non-plugins. The large backlog of BEV orders waiting to be fulfilled in the coming months will also help ensure that plugins continue to grow share in 2022.
