Western Europe became the leader in terms of supply of electric vehicles

This result was recorded in seven months of this year.

Western Europe became the leader among regions in the supply of new electric vehicles from the beginning of January to the end of July 2020. Note that China is still the leader among the countries, but earlier it was in the lead not only among the countries, but also stood above various regions. The experts of the magazine attributed the members of the European Union, as well as Norway, Sweden and Iceland to the countries of Western Europe.

In the period from the beginning of January to the end of July, a total of about 500 thousand new electric cars were delivered to Western Europe. For comparison, in China this figure was 486 thousand copies. There is a logical explanation for such statistics – in China, government subsidies for electric car manufacturers have been reduced, while in Europe their size is only increasing.

This allows dealers to offer cars at better prices, which in turn affects demand and supply.
At the same time, sales of electric cars are growing both in Europe and in China.

Previously, the electric version of the Hyundai Kona set a mileage record without recharging. The distance that the car has managed to cover looks really impressive. This car has previously set a record for distance without recharging in mountainous conditions.
