Spain - On the Road and Deployments

On the Road

Data from the Directorate General of Traffic (DGT) indicate a total fleet of electric vehicles (BEV, EREV,PHEV) of 20,012 vehicles (electric bicycles not considered) in Spain at the end of 2016.

Regarding registrations, 6,171 electric vehicles were registered in 2016: more than double of 2015 registrations (2 866 units). These registrations are concentrated in the provinces of Madrid and Barcelona.
Assuming that the trend continues, if the number of registrations followed the same annual development pattern that has characterised the market since 2010, with an average annual increase of about 20 %, the number of vehicles registered in 2020 would reach 38,000 units. However, thanks to the incentive effect to electric mobility created both by the Strategy to Promote Alternative Energy Vehicles 2014-2020 and by the measures contained in this National Action Framework, market forecasts reasonably estimate that the Spanish fleet in 2020 will be about 150,000 electric vehicles.
