Electric Car Boom: Over 1,500 New EVs Registered in Czechia in June 2024

In June 2024, over 1,500 new electric cars were registered in the Czech Republic, capturing nearly 7% of the market share.

This milestone signals a larger trend within the country.

This is the second time in history that more than 1,000 new battery electric vehicles (BEVs) have been registered in the Czech Republic in a single month.

To understand the rise in popularity of BEVs, we can look back to May 2019 when the Ministry of Transport launched a grant program for alternative fuel infrastructure. The program allocated CZK 146 million to create additional charging stations, showing the government’s commitment to promoting BEVs.

This support has directly contributed to the recent increase in their use.

Currently, there are more than 27,600 BEVs in the M1 passenger vehicle category in the Czech Republic, reflecting an increase of over 5,000 in the first half of this year. The infrastructure to support these vehicles has also expanded, with more than 5,200 public charging points now available.

Data from the Clean Transport website, based on information from the Ministry of Transport, highlights these developments.

In 2023, global automotive markets rebounded significantly after a downturn caused by COVID-19 and other factors, marking a historic milestone.

For the first time, the best-selling car in Europe was an electric vehicle: the Tesla Model Y. Tesla achieved remarkable success with the Model Y, selling 254,822 units, a more than 100% increase in sales. The popular Dacia Sandero followed closely, with 235,893 units sold.

In December 2020, the highest number of registrations was recorded, mainly due to the Škoda Enyaq. However, since many Enyaqs were exported, only about 700 remained in operation in the country.

According to statistics by Elektromobilita CZ, 56% of people in the Czech Republic showed interest in buying an electric car in 2024.

Research indicates that over half of the Czech population intends to purchase an electric car within the next 10 years.
