During the first quarter of 2023, more than one million electric vehicles (EVs) were registered in Europe.
That’s according to data by Finbold, with the highest number of close to 500,000 coming in March.
January witnessed 320,000 registrations, with 360,000 for February – representing a 53% increase for these months on the continent compared with last year.
Hybrids accounted for 667,000 of these, EVs made up 320,000 and 189,000 plug-in hybrids hit the roads.
The report links the uptick in EV adoption to stronger governmental support and incentives to go electric, a better charging infrastructure and the growth of climate consciousness in the wealthier parts of society.
