Electric car sales in Western Europe are amazingly strong if you look at the percentages. Statistics from Britain’s Automotive Industry Data show electric car’s market share in Western Europe bounded 38 per cent last year, while sales zoomed almost 60 per cent. Unfortunately the base numbers are still pitifully small. Actual sales in 2013 for battery and plug-in hybrids were a barely noticeable 38,617, up from 24,157, for a market share of 0.34 per cent compared with 0.21 per cent in 2012.
