Top models

The Fiat 500 electric appears to be the best-selling all-electric car in October with 2,363 new registrations. The Volkswagen ID.3 (2,160) and Volkswagen ID.4/ID.5 counted together (2,115) completed the podium.

Tesla also had a decent first month of the quarter with 1,622 Tesla Model Y and 1,563 Tesla Model 3 sales.

With two months to go, there is a big chance that Tesla will secure the two top positions in 2022, but due to a growing number of BEV models, its market share probably will continue to decrease.
