Sizable rise in electric car sales recorded in Czechia

Sales of electric cars increased by 65 percent year-on-year in Czechia in the second quarter of this year. By contrast sales of plug-in hybrids fell by nearly one-third in the same period.

Between the start of April and the end of June some 1,168 electric cars were sold, compared to 706 in the same period last year. This is the sixth greatest growth in the field in the European Union, according to data from the international agency ACEA.
