Over 16,800 electric cars were registered in Romania last year, 35 percent more than in 2022
Romania reached the milestone of 42,000 electric cars, after over 16,800 vehicles were registered last year, 35 percent more than in 2022, according to an analysis by Lektri.co, one of the most important players in the local electric mobility sector.
“Last year, Romania has remained constant in terms of e-mobility. We had, with one exception, more than 1,000 units registered every month, and we are fast approaching the milestone of 5,000 charging points. The cars of the future will be electric, and I believe that more and more Romanians are moving towards e-mobility, and the market will grow more and more. We will continue to dedicate ourselves to the mission of making electric mobility accessible to everyone, offering high-quality products and innovative technological solutions”, said Claudiu Suma, CEO of LEKTRI.CO.
Among electric cars, Dacia Spring exceeded the threshold of 16,000 registered vehicles, in total, maintaining its leading position, with 6,877 units registered last year alone. The 2nd and 3rd places are occupied by the Tesla models, becoming the second most popular model after Dacia, with 2,156 registrations for the Model Y and 1,149 for the Model 3. The first three ranks represent over 60 percent of all registrations made last year.
