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). . . .

What's impressive here is the spread of cars in the mix.
2019 S Plus (97.98% SOH) & 2019 SV Plus (94.84% SOH) Both Silver
2013 Leaf SV sold 2019 with 11 bars
100 Mile Club Member (Number 87)
Max Miles on 13 Leaf: 120 miles

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.

Europe: Plug-In Electric Car Sales Increased In August 2020 By 171%
https://insideevs.com/news/445800/europ ... gust-2020/

Tesla Model 3 was #1 in August, while Ford Kuga PHEV has become the #1 PHEV in Europe.

August 2020 was another spectacular month for plug-in electric car sales in Europe as nearly 97,500 new passenger plug-ins were registered, 171% more than a year ago.

volume was slightly lower than in the record July, but the market share improved to 11%, which means that more than 1 in 10 new cars sold is some kind of plug-in.

The market is currently divided into two nearly equal parts - some 51.5% are BEVs (over 50,000), and 48.5% are PHEVs. However, because PHEVs increased by 285%, while BEVs by "only" 112%, soon plug-in hybrids may become the majority. . . .

Total BEV sales in California at 8.9% of 2030 goal
https://www.greencarcongress.com/2020/0 ... bevca.html
. . . For a baseline, the report uses the goal of 5 million zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) on California roads by 2030 set by Executive Order B-48-18, which expanded on the prior Executive Order B-16-2012, which set a goal of 1.5 million by 2025.

Overall, total light vehicle sales in California in the first half of 2020 were 786,219 units, down 26.9% from sales in the same period in 2019 primarily as the result of weakened sales in the second quarter. Sales nationally were down 23.5%.

Even with reduced sales compared to
both half periods in 2019, battery electric vehicles (BEVs) managed to increase their market share slightly in the most recent results. Although BEV sales dropped from 52,087 in H1 2019 to 45,601 units in H1 2020, BEV market share rose from 4.9% in H1 2019 to 5.8% in H1 2020.

Sales of plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) dropped from 21,193 in H1 2019 to 15,724 in H1 2020, but maintained a 2.0% share across both periods.

Combined (BEV + PHEV = PEV), plug-in vehicle sales dropped from from 74,000 units in H1 2019 to 61,325 units in H1 2020, with market share rising from 6.9% in H1 2020 to 7.8% in H1 2020.

The Center commented this outcome reflects the current pandemic crisis economic situation, with the higher wage workers that still comprise the primary market for electric vehicles largely retaining their jobs through telecommuting.

However, overall market share—as well as regulatory claims for progress on the ZEV goals—still largely depend on sales of the combustion vehicle components, both Plug-in Hybrids (PHEVs) and standard hybrids (HEVs).

BEV sales still rely mostly on Tesla; Tesla sales in the first half were 89% of all California sales in this segment. Evolution of the market has yet to demonstrate sustained participation by a broader range of producers offering models that appeal to a larger share of consumers beyond the higher income segment targeted to date by Tesla, the Center noted.

In spite of the uptick in market share, BEVs remain a small component of the overall market. Using a simple exponential regression, at the current rate of market share growth, it would take nearly 40 years before BEVs reach 100% of vehicle sales, according to Center calculations. Such a calculation puts aside California Governor Newsom’s recent executive order mandating 100% new LDV ZEV sales in the state by 2035. (Earlier post. . . .)

Cumulative PEV Sales at 15.3% of 2030 Goal—BEVs at 8.9%. . . .

Using prior Energy Commission reviews to account for ZEVs no longer on the roads as a result of accidents, moves out of state, and other factors that over time remove vehicles from the active fleet, the actual progress rate consistent with the Executive Order language of “vehicles on California’s roads” would be 14.1%, while progress counting only true ZEVs would be 8.2%, according to Center calculations.

As discussed in the 2018:Q1 report, carpool lane sticker data, however, suggests a much higher turnover of PEVs “off California’s roads” than in prior estimates. This factor would put the progress to date even lower.
