100 Best Selling BEVs in 10 European Countries


By Maarten Vinkhuyzen and Zach Shahan

Because we never have enough statistics, here’s another list of top selling electric vehicles — this one showing the 100 best selling BEVs in 10 European countries (combined) in 2022. We thought it would be a bit fun to look deeper down the roster of popular (or semi-popular) European EVs. It will be weeks until we get a full, conclusive report on all of Europe, after all.

I do not have the numbers and large data collection system that José Pontes has. I just copy and paste from the EU-EVs.com website. This website provides the sales totals by model for 10 countries — Norway, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, Ireland, and Finland. It includes many more interesting facts beside the few I’m showing here.

When collecting from different sources, the same product can have different names, or just a little difference in punctuation — like “ID3” vs. “ID 3” vs. “ID.3.” More complex is when the brand is different. The Cupra Born is also sold as the SEAT Born. Those differences are resolved here. For example, the SEAT Born is consolidated as the Cupra Born and there is, accordingly, only one line for the model.

For many models, you can find the specs here: https://ev-database.org. Otherwise, try Wikipedia.

Following the table of the top 100 models, we’ll also dive into the top auto groups and top brands in these 10 markets.

Now, without further ado, the 100 best selling BEVs in 10 European countries (combined):
