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.
