While it was announced today how many new passenger cars were registered in the Netherlands in September, the European registration figures are also trickling in, although they concern August. What seems? The number of EVs delivered more than doubled in August compared to the same month last year. This is evident from figures released by Jato Dynamics.

According to Jato Dynamics, almost 900,000 new passenger cars were registered in Europe in August. That is 20 percent more than in August last year. Of those approximately 900,000 cars, 22 percent – just under a quarter – were EVs. According to the figures from Jato Dynamics, this concerns 196,000 copies, more than 102 percent more than in August 2022.

Petrol cars are still by far the most popular in Europe. Petrol cars accounted for 53 percent of European registrations in August. The number of newly registered petrol cars increased by 11 percent in August. As previously expected, the Tesla Model Y was not only the electric car with the most units registered in August, but also the car in general with the most units registered. 21,549 copies were registered in August. In the first eight months of this year, 169,240 units were sold, putting the Model Y on track to become the most popular new passenger car of 2023.

In the first eight months of this year, 197,800 passenger cars from Chinese car brands were registered in Europe. MG accounted for a 69 percent share. Volkswagen takes the lead in the brand rankings in August and remains well ahead of Toyota – which is in second place. Toyota did have better growth figures than Volkswagen in August.
