Sales of plug-in hybrid cars are losing momentum to electric cars
Now that October is over, it is time to look at the sales figures for electric cars in Spain and analyse their evolution.
These data give us a clear clue as to the trends and purchasing intentions of Spanish users when it comes to adopting 100% electric technology.
The first and most striking thing we see is that registrations of the different types of vehicles (by engine type) have grown compared to the same month in 2021, except for one, plug-in hybrids, which has obtained 5% fewer sales than in October 2021.
This figure could be very significant if it is repeated in November 2022, as it would be a clear trend that users have stopped opting for this technology in favour of making the leap directly to pure electric cars.
In terms of electric car sales in October 2022 in Spain, there were 2,769 units, 15% more than in the same period last year, when the figure was 2,415 units.
