Manufacturers of connected hybrids suspend sales against the background of the introduction of a new system for testing emissions and fuel consumption .
At the same time, the sale of ordinary hybrids increased.
|3rd quarter 2018||154,624||34.6|
|1st quarter of 2018||459 825||34.3|
Growth was in all countries except Norway, whose market, for the most part, is already occupied by plug-in electric cars.
If we talk about the ratio of hybrids sold to plug-in electric vehicles, then the picture has hardly changed in a year, but you can still see a slight shift towards plug-in electric vehicles. For the first 3 quarters of this year, the total number of connected electric vehicles amounted to 2.24% of the market. This is more than 0.55% over the same period last year.
