The same aspect is also triggering the leading players to introduce new variants in the market and cater to the burgeoning user requirements through 2027.

Although the Covid-19 & national lockdown measures affected the total car sales across Europe due to the shutdown of showrooms, manufacturing halt, and movement limitations, EV sales still managed to remain upheld over Internal Combustion Engine (ICE). The initial phase in the European Union showcased a contraction in the demand for new passenger cars, yet later in April 2020, the month demonstrated a significant number of registrations for new passenger cars.

Key Trends in the Europe Electric Personal Car Market

  • Stringent Mandates by Governments for Electrification & Decarbonization 

As concerns over air pollution & emission on human health & environment are mounting rapidly alongside the hiking prices of fuels, the governments of different countries across Europe are imposing stringent emission limitations. Such norms are principally for decarbonization & to encourage the adoption of cleaner & cost-effective alternatives.

Hence, the demand for Electric Vehicles replacing Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) is mounting rapidly across Europe and positively influencing the market growth. Besides, constant developments in batteries for EVs to bring higher efficiency to cars are further stimulating the market across Europe through 2027. 

  • According to the European Battery Alliance (EBA), the region is set to become the world's biggest lithium-ion battery cell maker by the end of 2025 & shall have a direct & positive influence on the EV market.

Market Segmentation

Based on Propulsion Type:

  • Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV)
  • Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)
  • Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV)
  • Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV)

Here, Battery Electric Vehicle dominated the Europe Electric Personal Car Market with the largest share in the previous years and is set to continue the same trend during the forecast period. This dominance attributes to the low charging costs of these vehicles, attracting a substantial consumer base. Since BEVs entail almost half the electricity cost to charge as conventional vehicles, people are opting for these cars for their personal use and enjoying the cost-effectiveness.

Moreover, the low maintenance of these vehicles due to fewer moving parts facilitates easy, cost-effective, & less frequent service requirements, and hence, has a larger and growing consumer base across Europe. The same aspect is also generating growth opportunities for the leading players to increase their production & distribution capacities for BEVs and cater to the burgeoning demands throughout the region. For Instance:

  • Back in 2021, Tesla Model 3 became a top-selling electric car across Europe, where battery-powered vehicles emerged as an area of opportunity encircled by the shortage of semiconductors as an aftereffect of the pandemic. This Model 3 also replaced Renault Zoe off the top EV spot and overtook conventionally popular models like VW Tiguan & Peugeot 3008 SUVs.

On the other hand, Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) are projected to demonstrate the fastest growth in the Europe Electric Personal Car Market during the forecast period. This growth is driven by the significantly less petroleum consumption in these vehicles than that f conventional fuel-powered cars. Besides, these cars are excellent for those seeking electric & fuel based vehicles, owing to their capability to run on fuel in case the batteries run out.

Based on Battery Type:

  • Lithium Ion
  • Nickel-Metal Hydride Battery
  • Others (Lead-Acid Batteries, Nickel-Cadmium Battery, etc.)

Here, Lithium Ion Batteries are anticipated to acquire the largest share of the Europe Electric Personal Car Market during the forecast period. It owes principally to the capabilities of these batteries to provide higher energy to vehicles than other sources entwined with their low self-discharge & excellent performance in high-temperature.

Besides, since Lithium Ion batteries are also highly energy efficient, they have a wider consumer base across different countries in the region. Backed by the current trends of adopting environmentally-friendly mechanisms to minimize emissions, the deployment of lithium-ion batteries in Electric personal cars is likely to mount throughout Europe and drive the overall market in the coming years.
