On the other hand, diesel vehicles registered a recoil of 6.2 percentage points, in the reference period, holding a share of 20.8% of the total.At the same time, the "electrified" vehicles, as well as the electric vehicles (100% and plug-in hybrids), as well as full hybrids (those that have electric propulsion without external charge), have, at the end of September 2021, a market share of 12%, 1.8 times larger than the one they held in the similar period of last year (6.4%)."Like in 2020, when, although a decrease of vehicle sales was recorded, the "greens" performed, in 2021, the purchases in this category nearly doubled (+93.6 pct), compared to the similar period of last year. In this context, it's worth noting the important increase of plug-in hybrid vehicles (+233.7 pct)," the APIA analysis mentions.Most vehicle purchases were rendered, in the first nine months of the year, to companies, which cover 55 pct of purchases, while individuals have a share of 45 pct.In the light commercial vehicles category (minibuses and pick-ups), a 22.5 pct increase was noted in the first nine months.
