June marks the seasonal peak for Sweden, usually followed by a slow Q3 period, until the new model-year updates become visible in registrations in Q4.

Majority of sales are pure EVs now

The share of pure EVs has stabilized at 53 %, a development that reflects the value improvements of these vehicles since last year. Both, EV and PHEV receive the same 40 000 SEK purchase incentive from the Swedish Government. Growth in EVs came from higher sales of Tesla Model S, Nissan Leaf and Nissan e-NV 200 van. VW e-Golf sales are still erratic, month by month, its toughest competitor is the Golf GTE, which became available in June. The EV/PHEV split could swing back to the favor of PHEVs, if the Golf GTE continues to climb in the charts. Sales of other PHEV models were either stable or declining during Q1 and Q2.
