For the first time in Europe, electrified new car registrations overtook diesel new car registrations in September 2020. 

This means that in September one in four new car registrations was either a BEV, PHEV or HEV (according to data from JATO Dynamics). 

The best selling car was the Volkswagen Golf (28,731).

The best selling Hybrid car was the Toyota Corolla (15,093).

The best selling Plug-in Hybrid was the Mercedes-Benz A-Class (4782). 

The best selling fully electric car was the Tesla Model 3 (15,702).

The shift from ICEs to EVs is finally taking place. Although this is largely down to government policies and incentives, consumers are also now ready to adopt these new technologies. Volkswagen Group arrived late to the EV boom, but its competitive products are catching up quickly, and it is now becoming a leader. 

Said Felipe Munoz, Global Analyst at JATO Dynamics.
