Spain: One In Ten New Cars Sold In 2022 Was Rechargeable

New passenger car registrations in Spain decreased in 2022 to just over 800,000 units, which is several percent lower than in 2021.

The plug-in electric car segment continues to expand, reaching new record levels – although December was slightly slower than a year ago.

According to EnergyTransition Fan, some 8,236 new plug-in electric cars were registered last month (down 2.5 percent year-over-year), which is 11.0 percent of the total market. Nonetheless, the result was one of the highest ever.

Plug-in hybrids were responsible for the majority of new rechargeable car sales, but the advantage over all-electric cars is shrinking.

Stats for the month:

  • BEVs: 3,596 (down 1%, at 4.8% market share)
  • PHEVs: 4,640 (down 4%, at 6.2% market share)
  • Total: 8,236 (up 2.5%, at 11.0% market share)

New passenger plug-in car registrations in Spain – December 2022

In 2022, more than 79,000 new passenger plug-ins were registered in Spain. That’s a noticeable 18 percent increase over 2021 and almost 10 percent of the total market (a year ago it was 7.6 percent).

Plug-in car registrations year-to-date:

  • BEVs: 31,531 (up 31%, at 3.8% market share)
  • PHEVs: 47,988 (up 11%, at 5.8% market share)
  • Total: 79,519 (up 18%, at 9.6% market share)

Let’s hope that the year 2023 will bring further growth, maybe even more than 100,000+ plug-in car registrations.
