California: Plug-In Electric Car Sales Down 17% In H1 2020

https://insideevs.com/news/438647/calif ... s-h1-2020/

Tesla accounted for the majority of plug-in car sales in the state, but the result is lower by almost one fifth than in 2019.

The automotive market was significantly affected by the COVID-19 related lockdown and sales slowdown in the first half of the year.

In California, sales went down by 26.9% year-over-year to 786,219 (including 294,783 passenger cars - down 35.6%, and 491,436 light trucks - down 20.5%), according to the California New Car Dealers Association (CNCDA).

The plug-in car market was falling slower than the overall market, but the decrease of 17.1% to 61,325 is not small either (in big part because of PHEVs):

BEVs: 45,601 (market share of 5.8%), down 13.6% from 52,807
PHEVs: 15,724 (market share of 2.0%), down 25.8% from 21,193
Total: 61,325 (market share of 7.8%), down 17.1% from 74,000
HEVs: 44,028 (market share of 5.6%), down 9.9% from 48,861
Total xEVs: 105,353 (market share of 13.4%), down 14.3% from 122,861


Four all-electric cars were at the forefront of their subcategories, and two of them were #1:

Tesla Model 3 (24,850, down 24.7%): #1 in Near Luxury (48.5% share)
Tesla Model X (3,933, up 6.6%): #4 in Luxury Mid Size SUV (9.8% share)
Chevrolet Bolt EV (3,575, down 20.2%): #1 in Subcompact (20.8% share)
Tesla Model S (2,398, down 29.3%): #4 in Luxury and High End Sports Cars (11.0% share). . . .

There are the usual graphs.

Spain Sets New Plug-In Electric Car Sales Record In July 2020

https://insideevs.com/news/438300/spain ... july-2020/

July is responsible for more than a quarter of the total year-to-date new plug-in registrations.

July supposed to be a slower month of the year in terms of car sales in Spain, but not this time. Thanks to new incentives, the overall market showed 1% of growth year-over-year, while the plug-in segment in particular surged to a new record of almost 4,000!

In total, some 3,887 new passenger plug-in cars were registered, which is 3.3% of the total market (including 1.4% for BEVs).

The most interest was in plug-in hybrids:

BEVs: up 117% year-over-year to 1,608
PHEVs: ip 357% year-over-year to 2,279
After the first seven months, a total of 14,634 new plug-ins were registered (3.2% of total). . . .

Germany: Almost 36,000 Plug-Ins Were Sold In Record-Setting July 2020

https://insideevs.com/news/439064/germa ... july-2020/

German plug-in car market quadrupled in July to a whole new level.

July was an absolute record of records in terms of plug-in electric car sales in Germany, fuelled by the generous incentives and higher availability of new models.

While the overall market went down by 5.4% year-over-year, the new passenger plug-in car registrations shot up by 289% year-over-year to 35,917!

For the very first time, more than one in ten new cars is a plug-in - the precise market share in July was 11.4%.

Plug-in hybrids are selling noticeably better than all-electric:

BEVs: 16,798 – up 182% at ~5.3% market share
PHEVs: 19,119 – up 485% at ~6.1% market share
Total: 35,917 – up 289% at ~11.4% market share.

New registrations year-to-date:

BEVs: 61,105 – up 65% at ~4.0% market share
PHEVs: 68,660 – up 247% at ~4.5% market share
Total: 129,765 – up 128% at ~8.5% market share. . . .

Netherlands: Plug-In Electric Car Sales Up By 139% In July 2020

https://insideevs.com/news/439225/nethe ... july-2020/

Kia Niro EV (e-Niro) has become #1 ahead of Tesla Model 3.

After a few months of a slight decline, COVID-19 related, plug-in car sales in the Netherlands are growing again. In Jul, sales went up by 139% year-over-year to 5,685 new registrations.

That's the best monthly result so far this year and it allowed EVs to take about 16% market share in the overall market (which also expanded a little bit in July - by 4% year-over-year).

BEVs took 11% of the market, but their growth of "only" 83% was overshadowed by PHEVs, which increased fivefold to 1,815!

Because things improved so much in July, now even the year-to-date plug-in car sales numbers are better than in 2019. This year, 25,769 new plug-ins were registered (up 15% year-over-year), while the average market share is 13% (10% for BEVs). . . .

List of sales by model.
