Europe electric car market: Tesla establishes new electric car segment-establishes

An consideration of the European electric car market according to vehicle segments has not yet existed in our portal. time to catch up. Because the findings are quite interesting. From January to July 2019, Europe is known to have turned 183.931 electric cars were registered, a good 31.4 percent of which could be assigned to the lower middle class.

57.750 electric cars could be classified in this segment in the first seven months of 2019. Especially the Nissan Leaf (18th.801 units), the BMW i3 (17.397 units) and the VW e-Golf (13.585 units) are responsible for the high proportion of the lower middle class in the overall market.

With the so-called “near-executive segment” follows a segment that was actually unknown to us in Europe until February 2019. Because behind it there is only one vehicle, the Tesla Model 3. The Model 3 alone had 40 from January to July 201.667 new registrations or 22.10 percent of the total registrations. Consider now that the leaf, i3 and e-golf in total “only” to 49.783 units came, this underlines the importance of the Model 3 for the European market as a whole.

Just behind the Model 3 is the “SUV/Crossover” segment, the third largest sub-market in the European electric car market. This segment holds a 20.30 percent share of the overall market, or 37.410 registered e-cars. The small car sector should also be worth mentioning with 28.146 units and a market share of 15.30 percent.

The remaining segments are around or below the five percent limit of the total market share. However, a look at the different segments of the European market shows wonderfully that e-car registrations can now be seen in almost every sector. Regardless of the absolute numbers behind it.

It is currently based on the market launch of the MEB models of the Volkswagen Group next year the market for the lower middle class range will continue its growth. But the “small car” sector, to which the Peugeot e208, the Opel Corsa-e and the new Renault ZOE are assigned in the evaluation, should also experience corresponding growth.

The introduction of the Porsche Taycan will also significantly strengthen the luxury segment in terms of volume. However, one should not assume that the market share of 2.7 percent (4.981 units) is growing extremely fast.

Electric car registrations by segment from January to July 2019

  • Basic – 9.914 units – 5.4 percent
  • Small car – 28.146 units – 15.3 percent
  • Lower middle class – 57.750 units – 31.4 percent
  • Near executive – 40.667 units – 22.1 percent
  • SUV/Crossover – 37.410 units – 20.3 percent

  1. Which category would the Hyundai ioniq electric fit into?? I wouldn’t count it in the small car category myself. It goes without saying that the Tesla Model 3 is in a class of its own, quality and comfort as well as preparation for the future is what sets Tesla apart from others and makes it a pioneer and pioneer of electromobility!

  2. Quality is certainly not a feature that the Model 3 can claim for itself, at least if you believe the many negative reports on the Internet.

  3. I told you so…. We demand a people’s car! And now they come. If the Tesla 3 is still a bit cheaper, the in this class can also have a belonging word in this class thanks to its greatest experience in the field.

  4. It is pure wishful thinking that the electric car can solve the current traffic problems. The further environmental pollution can probably be mitigated somewhat in this way.
    The following points are unresolved:
    a) A nature-friendly production of the batteries. Here refer to the problems in mining the source material of silicon in the Republic of Congo and in the Andean region of Argentina, Bolivia and Chile.
    b) The disproportion between the weight of a person to be transported of 75 kg on average and the means of transport car of 1.000 – 2.000kg.
    c) A modern railway connection between the cities or. their expansion. Possible a completely redesign of rail transport (not only nationally at least inner-European with appropriate continental connection stations.
    d) More intelligent transport methods in inner-city areas and corresponding connections from the urban environment.
    There have been corresponding approaches in the past and also current attempts at improvement (express train model on the initiative of the TH Munich with the company Tesla. In the 1970s, a cab taxi was ready for production. This would have reduced the chaotic traffic in the Munich area for approx. 40 years to get a handle on.
    For this reason, looking only at the electric car is far too short-sighted. You also have to consider that the rest of the world also wants to participate in technical progress in the future and that the purely environmental limits must not be exceeded.
