European Plug-In Electric Car Sales Surge, While Diesel Collapses In October

(REPOST: InsideEVs)

The steady move up resulted in around 2.1% market share.

At the same time, Europe observes collapse in diesel-powered cars, which in one year lost nearly one fifth of its market share, shrinking from 49% to barely 42%. Two years ago it was more than 51%.
