    Stellantis Sells More Electric Cars Than Tesla In Europe

    Aug 05,2022 | Chloe Lacour

    Stellantis sold 105,413 electric cars in the first half of 2022 in Europe, compared to 78,277 for the American firm.

    Stellantis is on the rise in Europe in terms of electric vehicle sales: the Franco-Italian-American group overtook Tesla in the first half of the year and is approaching the Volkswagen group. The automotive group, born from the merger of the French group PSA and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, aims to become the leading European seller of electric cars, ahead of Volkswagen and Tesla.

    In the first half of 2022, Stellantis sold 105,413 all-electric cars in Europe, compared to 78,277 for Tesla. The group is just behind the 116,307 electric cars sold by the Volkswagen group, according to figures relayed by Dataforce.

    The figures include registrations from the 27 countries of the European Union, in addition to the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Iceland, and Norway. On the other hand, statistics from Portugal, Sweden, and Finland were not available.

    The electric Fiat 500 and Peugeot 208 are a hit

    Stellantis' best-selling electric vehicle in Europe was the electric Fiat 500, which was also the best-selling all-electric car in Western Europe in the second quarter, according to analyst Matthias Schmidt. It's the first time since the last quarter of 2020 that it's not a Tesla model.

    "The new 500 was also the best-selling electric car in Italy and Germany in the second quarter," Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares told investors during the first-half earnings call. In France, the Peugeot e-208 was the best-selling electric car over this period.

    Tesla's sales growth in Europe has slowed due to the pandemic shutdown of its factory in Shanghai, China, which manufactures Model 3s and Model Ys for export to Europe, and the slow ramp-up of its new factory near Berlin, which started producing some Model Ys last March.

    A comeback from Tesla?

    However, analyst Mathias Schmidt expects Tesla to "come back strong in the third quarter" as pandemic-driven shutdowns end in China, Berlin production begins to pick up steam, and supply issues begin to rise. supply of semiconductors is improving. Mathias Schmidt believes Tesla will deliver around 200,000 units in Europe in the second half.

    Even though Tesla saw its European quarterly volumes fall to their lowest level in two years, its models still held the top two spots in Europe in the first half. The Model Y topped the list with 39,969 sales, followed by the Model 3 with 38,280 registrations. We then find the electric Fiat 500 with 32,315 registrations and the Peugeot e-208 with 21,918 sales. The Volkswagen Group's best-selling electric car, the Skoda Enyaq iV, came in fifth place, with 19,951 units.

    Stellantis sales also include several thousand 100% electric utility vehicles, including the Citroën ë-Berlingo (956 sales), and the Opel Combo-e (866).
