If the sales of conventional passenger cars do not stop falling, electrified vehicles enjoy more and more acceptance in the Spanish market. According to data from the Spanish Association of Car and Truck Manufacturers (Anfac), in May sales of these models reached 2,421 units sold. This figure, 12.6% higher than the same month of the previous year, represents almost 2.5% of the total market share.
So far this year, sales of these vehicles amount to 19,791 units, 36.6% more than in the same period of the previous year. In turn, the accumulated fee for the year is 5.25%.
“Sales of this type of vehicle have increased compared to the previous year, which is good news, but its rate of entry is still slow and below that necessary to reach the milestone of 120,000 electrified passenger cars for this year, which will allow us to meet our the European requirements to reduce emissions”, considers Jose Lopez-TafallCEO of Anfac.
For this May, the trend has been the small urban cars of the B and C segments, although, curiously, the one who has led the sales ranking is an SUV with the dimensions of a sedan. This is how the list with the best-selling electric cars in the month of May is configured:
