Electric Vehicle registrations in Europe: 15 countries, majority of BEV market

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER REGARDING UK, French and Belgian data

Please note that there are certain limitations regarding UK, French and Belgian data
that you should be aware of:
UK
  1. UK Data is obtained through the DVLA Vehicle Enquiry Service API and the DVSA MOT History API.
  2. These APIs provide access to the vehicle licensing database, which stores details of all licensed vehicles in the UK.
  3. The database behind APIs is updated 5 times a week, and eu-evs.com downloads this data with a 2 to 10 day delay, focusing on Tesla brand registrations. Changes in data for earlier dates are possible.
  4. Warning! The data collected by eu-evs.com covers all vehicles with a standard UK and Northern Ireland vehicle registration plates (VRM), but does not include vehicles with personalized or non-standard new VRMs, i.e. figures in daily and monthly views may be slightly lower than figures from official sources such as SMMT or GOV.UK
  5. UK data includes all type M1, M2 & N1 vehicles.
France and Belgium
  1. Unfortunately, for France and Belgium there are no data sources that would provide complete information on all brands and models. Therefore, I have to collect available data from various sources, while grouping some of the data into the "Other" brand.
  2. Those car models that exist only in the BEV version are usually correctly included in the statistics. Those models for which there are ICE and hybrid options will, in most cases, fall into the “Other” brand (with the exception of the French sales leaders).
  3. That's why data for brands such as Tesla, Volkswagen, BMW, Audi, Mercedes-Benz will most likely be accurate, and data for brands such as Volvo, Renault, Peugeot, Hyundai and Opel will be partial or simply missing (included in “Other”).
  4. Practically, the publication of data for France will take place in two stages: first, information on the top 10 selling models will appear, and after 1-3 months - extended data on the rest of the available models
