Last week we published our regular review of the performance of the sector in terms of sales of passenger cars. In that article we saw a fact that glad us fairly, and is the first month of 2017 was closed with a large market share for electric and hybrid cars registered, representing no less than 5.3% of the total number of passenger cars sold. It may seem a low fee, but the truth is that it is very good for the usual trend in our country.
Not only the market share in terms of electric and hybrid cars is rather positive, but that is also in the global vehicle market (electric and hybrid), whereas in this paragraph passenger cars, commercial and industrial vehicles and buses. At the global level, this type of alternative propulsion has represented a total of 4.5%, with 4.664 units sold.
At the moment, vehicles hybrids continue to be well above the electric by its greater versatility and ease of use, as well as their autonomy. Those vehicles hybrids have added a total of 4,276 units in the month of January, representing a growth of the 101% in comparison with the same month of the year previous. The lack of incentives to slowed growth vehicles fully electric (are no longer available MOVELE or MOVEA plans), but even so have grown 12% with 271 vehicles, of which 223 have been passenger cars.
Passenger cars such as the BMW 225 (16 units) or i3 (19), Mercedes GLC 350 (22), Mitsubishi Outlander (35), Nissan Leaf (12), Renault Zoe (53), Volkswagen Passat (10) or Volvo XC90 (14) have been those who have contributed most to these as encouraging data. Let us hope that high-ranking politicians that manage different plans of aid for the purchase of vehicles know the importance of these hybrid and electric models for the market and actually support economically marketings, for passenger cars and other vehicles.
