Despite the situation in the automotive sector in Europe due to the pandemic caused by the COVID-19 coronavirus, sales of electric cars have been able to overcome the general decline in the market in March 2020.
In March 2020, sales of electric cars in Europe reached 50,100 units, which compared to the same period of the previous year represents an increase of 23%. Electric car models like the Tesla Model 3, Renault ZOE and Volkswagen e-Golf dominate the electrical market.
Between the of January and March 2020, electric car sales registered a total of 127,800 registrations, 57% more than in the first quarter of the previous year. Therefore the decline of the European market has not had a very negative effect on electric car registrations.
