Volkswagen sold more electric cars across the globe than Tesla at the end of last year for the first time ever, according to an analysis by business consultancy AlixPartners. The brands of the Volkswagen group, which include Porsche and Audi, sold 192,000 fully electric cars or plug-in hybrid vehicles in the fourth quarter, compared to Tesla’s 181,000 fully electric models.

 Europe overtook China as the world’s largest e-car market with sales of 1.4 million in 2020, and the global share of electric cars in new registrations more than doubled within a year to almost 6 percent at the end of 2020, according to AlixPartners. Clean Energy Wire
