The Swedish EV market witnessed 6,785 EV registrations in July, highlighting the region’s growing popularity of electric mobility. During this period, Sweden’s top five best-selling EV brands were Volkswagen, BYD, Kia, BMW, and Tesla. Volkswagen sold 1,133 units, and BYD closely followed with 843 units sold, with both brands capturing over 10% of the market share for the month. It is worth noting that this achievement marked BYD’s highest sales month in Sweden in 2023. The Volkswagen ID.4 ranked second among the top-selling EV models with 711 sales, while the BMW i4 secured the third spot with 385 deals.

Regarding individual EV models, the BYD ATTO 3 emerged as the best-selling EV, with an impressive 724 units sold. Remarkably, even when considering internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, the ATTO 3 still stood as the second best-selling model in the Swedish market, with the Volvo XC60 claiming the top spot. An astounding 86% of BYD’s sales in Sweden during July were attributed to the popularity of the ATTO 3, which serves as BYD’s primary export model worldwide. BYD also achieved sales of 64 units of the Han, 54 units of the Tang, and 1 unit of the e3 in Sweden.

BYD has invested in upgrading its transportation infrastructure to accommodate its expanding export volume. Two car carriers, ordered by BYD, are scheduled to be delivered this fall, further enhancing the company’s capacity to transport and export cars to various markets efficiently.

  1. I am not sure why Atto 3 is selling so well in Sweden. In Norway it is not much cheaper than Tesla’s best priced model – and that make it difficult to sell.

    I guess it is too expensive in Norway due to a greedy private import organization….
    BYD should deliver directly to the dealers. Almost all dealers know how to go online and order cars.
