The 50 Best Selling EV in Europe

The 50 Best Selling EV in Europe

The Tesla Model Y has unseated its brother, the Model 3 has been the king of electric car sales for the last three years or so, but its reign is over – at least for now. This might seem like bad news for Tesla, but nothing is further from the truth, since Model 3 has been unseated by another model in the house: the Tesla Model Y. This model has been the best-selling electric car in Europe during the first half of the year of 2022, but we will not stop there. We are going to find out which have been the 50 best-selling electric cars in our continent during the first half of the year.

Tesla Model Y

The Model 3 from the first place among the best-selling electric cars in Europe during the first quarter of 2022. But there are many more. These have been the 50 best-selling electric cars in Europe during the first half of 2022.

With more than 45,000 units sold between January and July, the Tesla Model Y has been the best-selling electric car in Europe during that period. It has superseded the Model 3, which has registered just over 40,000 registrations. Among other circumstances, the higher proportion of Model 3s coming from China has influenced this change in trend. Let us remember that during the month of May, the Shanghai area (where the Chinese Tesla factory is located) was affected by new confinements and temporary closures in the factories.

After the Tesla Model Y and Model 3, the third best-selling electric model is the Fiat 500e. The small Italian utility vehicle, completely renewed in 2020, has won bronze with almost 33,000 units sold. It is not a particularly affordable model (in Spain it costs 30,100 euros before subsidies and possible discounts) but its 460 kilometres of autonomy in the city (depending on the version), make it a very valid model in the environment where the Fiat 500 has always been. more comfortable, the city.

Another interesting fact regarding the Fiat 500 is that the electric version represents 38% of the sales of the model, whose previous generation continues to be sold with combustion mechanics. It is also the most successful electric car in the Stellantis group, followed by the Peugeot e-208. A Stellantis group that has surpassed Tesla in sales of electric cars during the first half of the year, although we must not forget that the French-Italian-American group sells electric cars in Europe under five different brands (Citroën, DS Automobiles, Fiat, Opel and Peugeot).

The fight for fourth place remains very tight, with just 15 registrations difference between the Peugeot e-208 and the Volkswagen ID.4, according to data from JATO Dynamics, collected by Felipe Muñoz, an analyst at Car Industry Analysis. And since we are talking about Volkswagen, the good numbers of the ID.4 contrast with those of the ID.3: sales of the German compact have registered a drop of 44% compared to the first half of the year 2021, leaving it outside the top 10 Other big hits are the smart EQ fortwo (-35%), the Mercedes EQC (-29%) and the Nissan Leaf (-21%), whose experience makes them pale in the face of increasingly numerous competitions.

Taking into account the energy source within the same model, by sales quota of the electric version, the Kia e-Niro especially stands out, whose battery version represents 54% of Niro registrations at European level. Also the electric Ioniq, which takes 41% of sales, and the Citroën ë-C4, a model manufactured in Spain whose electric version accounts for 39% of sales in Europe – the same share as the electric Hyundai Kona
