Model rank

One of the most interesting things is that the plug-in hybrid Lynk & Co 01 PHEV is still the top selltop-sellingn the country (369 new registrations in February).

However, all-electric cars strengthened their position and we can see the Kia Niro EV (301), Fiat 500 electric (283) and Audi Q4 e-tron (272) not far behind, with the plug-in hybrid Volvo XC40 PHEV (270) completing the top 5.

We can also note that besides the MEB-based Audi Q4 e-tron, there is Skoda Enyaq iV (255) and Volkswagen ID.4 (271) in the top seven.

On the other hand, there are still not many Teslas, and even Kia EV6/Hyundai Ioniq 5 duo is outside the top 10.

When it comes to January-February, Geely-Volvo’s plug-in hybrids are still one of the most popular rechargeable cars.

Top 10 year-to-date:

  1. Lynk & Co 01 PHEV – 731
  2. Volvo XC40 PHEV – 519
  3. Kia Niro EV (e-Niro) – 518
  4. Volvo XC60 PHEV – 437

  7. Audi Q4 e-tron – 380
  8. Peugeot e-208 – 374
  9. Ford Kuga PHEV – 353
  10. MINI Cooper SE – 351

In the case of the automotive groups, the Volkswagen Group has an 18.6% share and is just three units above the Geely-Volvo (also at 18.6%). The third is Stellantis (15.5%), slightly ahead of the BMW Group (13.6%) and Hyundai-Kia (13%).
