Electric car sales (full electric and plug-in hybrid) doubled in Romania last year, reaching over 3,800 units, according to a report presented by the Association of Automobile Manufacturers and Importers (APIA), quoted by Romania-Insider.com.
The growth was supported by the generous bonuses offered by the Romanian state through the Rabla Plus program.
Hybrid car sales went up by 5.2% to more than 5,000 units in 2020. Thus, the “green” car market segment went up by a third last year, to 8,900 units.
Meanwhile, the total sales of new passenger cars in Romania dropped by 21.7% last year, to 125,000 units.
On the bright side, car sales recovered towards the end of the year after a strong dip in the second a third quarters. In December, the sales were 16.2% higher than in the same month of 2019, at over 15,800 units.
