EV Statistics - April 2022
Nearly 13,000 electric cars were registered in April, up more than 40% from the same month last year. According to HRUX, the number of electric vehicles on the road is close to 475k, or about 1.5 percent of the 31.7m registered vehicles.
As the interest in electric cars continues to grow, so does the choice of vehicles in the market. This year alone we have seen the release of the Cupra Born, VW ID.4 and the Citroen Ami, if you haven’t seen the Ami yet, then I recommend having a look, it is a very unique looking car.
Tesla led the market last year, but the increased variety has demonstrated that consumers are beginning to look elsewhere. Tesla has dropped from being one of the most searched for cars on the platform to only 5th in just a few months.
Taking a look at Volkswagen, the ID.3 was the 3rd best-selling EV in 2021. In February, they unveiled the ID.4, a more spacious and SUV style car. In April, the ID.4 was the most searched car on the platform, closely followed by the Audi Q4.
