Despite electrified vehicle sales continuing to fall below the target of 190,000 units set for 2023, the registrations in October showed a significant advancement.

In the tenth month, there is a 54.9% increase in sales, which represents a substantial rise compared to the September figure, which stood at 18%.

According to the report prepared by the Spanish Association of Automobile and Truck Manufacturers (ANFAC), a total of 11,241 units were sold.

These vehicles, including passenger cars, quadricycles, commercial and industrial vehicles, as well as buses, make up 11.8% of the sales in the general market.

In contrast to the previous month, this increase reflects a rise of 2.7 percentage points.

Sales of electrified vehicles continue their upward trend in recent months, accumulating 99,314 units sold so far this year, which represents a 48% increase.

However, alternative-fuel vehicles (electrified, hybrid, and gas) continue to dominate sales with a growth of 44.6% in the month, totaling 42,416 units.

Specifically, pure electric cars experienced an 89.6% increase in October, with 6,177 sales, accounting for 6.48% of the market share in the month and 5.21% annually.

Plug-in hybrids also showed a growth of 26.6% in October, with 5,064 registrations, contributing to a 5.31% market share in the month and 5.39% in 2023.

All Autonomous Communities saw an increase during the tenth month, with Madrid leading with 4,864 registrations of electric vehicles and 12,274 plug-in hybrids.

Meanwhile, Valencia secured the third spot in electric vehicles with 902 sales, and Andalusia led in plug-in hybrids with 2,817 registrations.

Ceuta, Melilla, and La Rioja maintained the last positions on the podium, although they showed growth compared to previous months.

According to José López-Tafall, ANFAC’s General Director, he states, “We are on the right path, but we need to accelerate the pace. The European average doubles our share of the electrified market.

Not only that, but he also emphasizes the importance of continuing the Plan Moves beyond December 31st.

Furthermore, he highlights the need to further expand the public access charging network and “implement a fiscal framework that encourages the acquisition of electrified vehicles by businesses.”
