Following the results of the first half of 2019, Germany displaced from its first position a long-term leader in this field – Norway.

Experts of the analytical agency Avtostat shared relevant information about the market for electric vehicles in Europe and the world. During the reporting period, the first six months of the current year were adopted. As a result of the calculations, the German electric car market was recognized as the most dynamically developing. During the first half of 2019, 48,000 electricity-powered vehicles were sold in this country.

The second place went to Norway with an indicator of 44,000 cars sold. Recall that for a long time it was Norway that was the leader in the electric car market in Europe.

However, in terms of the share of electric cars from the total car market, the Scandinavian country remains the undisputed leader – every second car sold in 2019 runs on electricity. In Germany, the share of electric cars is only 2.6% of all cars registered this year. World leaders in sales of electric vehicles this year are China, in whose territory 628,000 such cars were sold and the United States of America with an indicator of 149,000
