33% of new registrations in Western Europe are AFVs

Date: Thursday 18 March 2021

While the new car market is down by 23% for the first two months of 2021, the sales of Alternatively Fuelled Vehicles (AFVs) are soaring in Western Europe. Their cumulative sales share for January and February represents 28% of all cars sold in France (the smallest share) and 37% in Germany (the highest share).

In terms of growth rate compared to 2020, we are looking at a range of between +79% (UK) and +274% (Germany).

GiPA UK says:

With such figures, it is paramount for all aftermarket players to have a clear plan to address these vehichles in the near future!
