Insideevs: $STLA Overtakes $TSLA in Europe

Tesla is now third wheel in Europe. VW is 1st. And Stellantis is second? Stellantis?

Insideevs headline: Stellantis Overtakes Tesla In Europe EV Sales, Targets Top Spot

Sub-headline: Stellantis sold 105,413 BEVs in H1 2022 in Europe, compared to Tesla’s 78,277; still, the Model Y was the best-selling EV with 39,969.

Stellantis is on a roll in Europe when it comes to electric vehicle sales, with the Franco-Italo-American group overtaking Tesla in the first half of the year and closing in on Volkswagen Group.

The automotive group born from the merger of France’s PSA Group and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles aims to become Europe’s top seller of battery-electric vehicles, ahead of Volkswagen and Tesla.

In the first half of 2022, Stellantis sold 105,413 fully electric cars in Europe compared to Tesla’s 78,277 sales, and was just behind Volkswagen Group’s 116,307, according to figures from Dataforce cited by Automotive News Europe.

Important Note: This would not be the usual 14 country report from which I reference here on this board. See this next paragraph:

“The figures include registrations in the 27 countries of the European Union plus the UK, Switzerland, Iceland and Norway; data from Portugal, Sweden and Finland were not available.”
