In the first four months, 23,957 electrified passenger cars (BEV+PHEV) have been registered, if this rate is maintained the year would end with nearly 72,000 units sold, far from the 120,000 units set as a milestone in 2022 to reach the goal set by the PNIEC in 2030.

DECLARATIONS

José López-Tafall, general director of ANFAC, pointed out that “electrified vehicles have once again shown a better evolution than the general market in this last month. It is good news that this type of vehicle is, increasingly, a more present option for users. In any case, although it is growing, its demand must be promoted and accelerated if we want to achieve the emission reduction targets set by the PNIEC. At the current rate, this year we will be very far from the milestone of 120,000 electrified cars in 2022. The sector continues to push forward with a wide range of vehicles, but it is very necessary to generate a context of greater certainty for the user by promoting the infrastructures of recharging, greater efficiency of aid plans and a favorable tax framework that makes the electrified vehicle a first purchase option.
