European Auto Industry:Booming European Electric Car Registrations (March 2015) − by by James Ayre

The European electric vehicle (EV) market is continuing to see strong growth, based on registrations during March — with roughly 18,000 units registered, blowing past the old monthly record (set in December 2013) for the old continent. The old record was 14,197 units registered.

As it stands, more than 36,000 EVs have been registered in the European market this year — putting the market (if things continue this way) roughly on track to top 150,000 units in 2015.

Note that these numbers are not perfect. They don’t actually cover all European countries, and they include a lot of estimates, but much of the data is very usefully gathered (or estimated) through the painstaking work of José Pontes, and it helps to show what the European EV market looks like — quite different from the US market.
