VW at Europe's tip: Highest paragraph with e-cars & electric vehicles-vehicles

The numbers at the end of May for the European electrical automotive are available. It shows that plug-in hybrids (PHEV) with 421.729 units to pure E cars with 355.994 units have the nose front. After the end of February VW was still responsible for a large part of the pure e-auto paragraph, the end of the first quarter Tesla massively pushed over. But at the end of April it looked very different, at the end of May as well. Because it can be clarified: Volkswagen is the company with the highest E-Auto and electrified vehicle sales in Europe.

As individual segments placed on the market, we were already looking at for you. Now let’s take a look at how individual manufacturers have placed in Europe‘s e-car market. The VW Group last year brought most pure E cars as well as electrified vehiclesE-cars + plug-in hybrid (PHEV) – on the street. Only the Daimler Group was able to secure another first place outside the VW Group. The most remote plug-in hybrid for the full year 2020. You had to give this in between, but could bring it back to Stuttgart at the end of the first quarter. And keep to the end of May 2021 in your own house.

Plug-in hybrid and electric auto approvals on manufacturer

Below we consider how electric car and PHEV share behavior on manufacturer side. Which manufacturer relies more on part-time current or full flow and look like the proportion of the total admissions of the respective manufacturer until the end of May 2021. Above all, the VW Group is in focus again. A first clue for the development of Europe‘s e-car market delivers the following graphic.

VW continues to be at Europe’s peak in paragraph electrified vehicles

An image that seems to be changing to the fast no longer is that Volkswagen points to the top of Europe‘s e-car market. After a slight set of returns at the end of March, VW was also able to incorporate and retain the crown in paragraph pure E cars. Where at the end of June Tesla could come back to the close proximity of Volkswagen. Considered in detail shows that Volkswagen with 57.394 pure e-cars that were deducted in rank one in the Group – as well as in Europe’s e-car market. With a significant advantage over others to the other brands, these took it to the following result: Audi (14.605 units), Skoda (10.680) SEAT (4.166) And Porsche (4.808). These brought it in total just on 34.259 remote streamers and thus a little more than half of the E-auto paragraph of the brand VW.

For this, the four brands could convince with their strength at Phevs: Audi (24.774 units), Skoda (12.628) SEAT (16.032) and Porsche (5.033), in sum thus 58.467 partial circulation. Volkswagen considered for himself took it on 28.696 PHEV could be deducted. Thus, VW is also the only brand within the group, which has dropped significantly less strometers as part-time current. Should also be due to their strong focus on e-mobility. Looking at the proportion of electrified vehicles at their own car paragraph, it shows that VW could increase this from 14.1% in the previous month to 15.0% at the end of May 2021. Divided into 7.7% e-cars and 7.3% PHEV. The Group has thus been able to record 23.0% market share for its sales to the entire European electrical automotivity.

Stellantis continues on the Trail of the VW Group

In the second place it remains unchanged at the end of May 2021. In general, there was little movement in the placements to Europe‘s e-car market, as you will see below. Stellantis, which displaced the Renault-Nissan Mitsubishi Alliance from the second place in 2021, remain on the VW Group on the track. With its brands Peugeot, Opel / Vauxhall, Citroen, Fiat, Jeep and DS you put it in total on 59.690 Stromer and 48.112 partial circuits. It shows that especially Peugeot to the paragraph Reiner e-cars a massive share (26.740 units) contributes. Furthermore, this paragraph is due to Opel / Vauxhall (13.874) and Fiat (13.928) supported. DS (1.290) and Citroen (3.859) contributed a rather smaller share, Jeep not at all.

Jeep (11.182 units) is strong in the area of partial circuits. Within Stellantis only Peugeot with 20.345 Remove plug-in hybrids. Behind this follow Opel / Vauxhall (5.421), Citroen (6.289) and DS (4.874). Thus, it becomes clear that in Stellantis the Stromer predominates the partial current, although not quite as clear as in the previous months. Nevertheless, this also contributes to a paragraph of electrified vehicles with a share of 10.5%. Divided into 5.8% e-cars and 4.7% PHEV. The Group’s total European electrical market recorded 13.9% market share for its sales.

Plug-in-hybrid: Daimler continues to number one at the paragraph of the part-time current

At the end of December 2020, Daimler was able to see first rank of Europe’s e-car market in relisoned PHEV. Then had to give first rank to the BMW Group, which one has recaptured in March and has been holding since then. Daimler brought it to 25 at the end of May.852 Stromber and 62.048 Plug-in-hybrid. The latter came all from Mercedes, Smart threw “only” 15.736 Stromer in the scales, the other 10.116 electric cars came from Mercedes. Measured at its own paragraph, 30.7% of the vehicles were electrified, of which 9.0% fully and 21.7% were partially electrified. In a market share of electrified vehicles in the amount of 11.3%.

With a market share of electrified vehicles in the amount of 11.0%, the BMW Group could land. Within the group BMW controled the majority of the partial flow (56.542 units); Mini 8.119 units. In the streams, there was no too much distance compared to mini. BMW brought it to 11.876 and mini to 9.299 units. Again, the PHEV strategy of the group can not be denied.

Everything continues on the rear ranks “at the old one”

Behind it the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance ranks. The leading role within the Alliance continues to take Renault. These could be until the end of May 29.Setting up 997 electric cars. Followed by Nissan, which it on 12.959 E-cars brought. Mitsubishi is still represented with zero E vehicles in the ranking. Dacia in turn controls more electric vehicles for the ranking month for month. By the end of May, the brand brought it to 705 Stromber.

But both Dacia, as well as Nissan did not control PHEV to strengthen the position of Europe‘s e-car market. Here is particularly Renault with 16.486 PHEV and Mitsubishi with 6.907 units. There is then Volvo Cars a one – consisting of Volvo and Polestar – these were only part of Phev: 49.311 at Volvo and now 20 approvals at Polestar, which probably accounts for the Polestar 1. Furthermore, 5 could.162 Pure e-auto approvals at Volvo (XC40 Recharge Our experience report), as well as 6.377 at Polestar. Incidentally, almost every second vehicle (45.3%) was allowed with a plug. What leads to a share of 7.8% in the European overall market.

At the end of the fifth month, it brought Hyundai Group – consisting of Hyundai and Kia – on 39.796 Stromber and 20.543 Plug-in-hybrid. Here, too, there is a clear plus of e-auto-over PHEV approvals. The number of approved E-cars was relatively fairly distributed. Hyundai 21.058 units; Kia in his part 18.918. The differences in the partial circuits were already bigger: Hyundai 4.139 units / KIA 16.404 units. Measured at its own paragraph, it is taken to 18.4% vehicles with plugs; Of this, 12.1% is attributable to electricity and 6.2% on part-time current. On the entire plug market in Europe you are involved with 7.8%.

The proportion of subsequent brands in Europe’s e-car market will still be too low at the end of May 2021 to evaluate this in more detail. Therefore, the reference to the indicated graphic, which allows a look at PHEV and E-Auto approvals. We do not want to leave Tesla completely unmentioned, these brought it to 40.800 approved E-vehicles.

  1. An electric car is a car. Cars design, build and sell and service can be classic manufacturers.

    Tesla has introduced himself differently: Build a good car with lots of software and then only deliver updates. The problem was only: You could not build a good car. Because they did not belong to the advice of experts and wanted to do it differently. This resulted in series almost every part had to improve several times. From the hardware. Let’s take the heating in Model S once. A simple ptc element, but the board was not well sealed enough. Since you had to ran twice.And the superchargernet is a stress for a long time. Likewise, they could hardly gain more lucrative customers above the middle class.

    VW, on the other hand, makes everything right and consistently relies on his platform strategy. But has opened the market convincingly with e-golf and e-up. The successor of the e-up is 2025 with 20.000 € for a vehicle in the Polo class announced. The id.3 starts at 30.000 €, which with the current promotion about 21.000 € are. And there are even charming leasing offers. It’s hard to arrive against.
