Every fifth new BEV pure electric passenger car registered across Western Europe during 2023 was manufactured in China


PREVIEW Full Year 2023 Market

However according to exclusive data from the European Electric Car Study's full year edition published for subscribers next week, 60 per cent of those made-in-China BEVs and shipped to Western Europe in 2023 – and crucially taking up limited PCTC shipping capacity – were in fact from models belonging to Western brands with just four-in-ten from Chinese brands.

More granular exclusive data and insights are provided in the regular double-page Chinese OEM insight section published monthly in the full study for subscribers or available as a single edition.   The European Electric Car Study published by Schmidt Automotive Research each month and is available to purchase as a single edition or an annual subscription.

The study now also features a double page in-depth look at the Chinese OEMs as their European expansion slowly begins. Are Chinese OEMs really a threat to the established European OEMs and what does the outlook look like?
