The electric Tesla Model Y achieved 29,367 registrations in Europe in September 2022, the first time since its launch that it has topped the list of best-selling European cars. Model Y has been produced instead of Model 3, which is experiencing a decline in interest, due to the high demand in the German market for electric SUVs.
Registrations for the Model Y have increased by 226 percent since September last year, reports Reuters. There are 19,601 registrations for the Peugeot 208, up 41.2 percent, while 17,733 registrations for the Dacia Sandero, down -2 percent.
With 17,226 registrations, there is a 196 percent increase over the same month last year for the Romanian compact. The European ranking for September 2022.

It is estimated that the world's largest automakers will spend more than $1.2 trillion on the development and production of electric vehicles by 2030, including the cost of batteries and raw materials. Over 50 percent of total vehicle production in 2030 will be electric vehicles, according to Reuters analysis.
EV-Volumes reports that 847,590 new electric vehicles were registered in August, a 60 percent increase from August last year. A global view shows a 15 percent market share (11% fully electric, 4% plug-in hybrid). Over the first eight months of this year, 5.7 million new electric passenger cars were registered, and in 2021, 6.5 million will be registered.
It shouldn't surprise anyone if the sale of electric vehicles surpasses 10 million by the end of this year due to increased sales figures at the end of the year. According to the ranking of models, Tesla and the "Chinese" stand out (as many as seven), while the Volkswagen ID.4 somehow made it into the top ten.
Among registered e-vehicles this year, 409,378 were Tesla Model Ys, while 278,838 were Wuling Hong Guang MINI EVs. In third place with 268,157 registered streams is Tesla's Model 3.
