Battery electric cars are the third most popular choice for buyers in the EU

The race to decarbonize road transport continues to gather momentum, especially with the growth of electric vehicles in the European Union (EU). The transition to more sustainable and emission-free mobility is in full swing, with the increasing adoption of clean technologies in the automotive sector.

According to the latest ACEA report, in 2023, the EU automotive market experienced strong growth of 13.9% compared to 2022, reaching a volume of 10.5 million units.

Most EU markets experienced strong growth, including the four largest: Italy (+18.9%), Spain (+16.7%), France (+16.1%) and Germany (+7.3%). Despite the overall growth, a comparison with pre-pandemic volumes highlights the extent to which registrations have fallen, currently standing 19% below the pre-pandemic volume of 13 million units registered in 2019.
