New data from the European Automobile Manufacturers' Association (ACEA) highlighted the correlation between the affordability of electric cars and their market uptake. The analysis compared national data on the sales of electrically-chargeable vehicles (ECVs) with GDP per capita in the EU member states for full year 2018. The data showed all countries with an ECV market share of less than 1% - half of all EU member states - have a GDP per capita below EUR29,000.
