Plug-In Car Sales In UK Climbing To 1.4% Market Share In February
Pretty encouraging plug-in electric car sales results are now coming from the UK, where EVs reached its second highest market share ever in February – up to 1.41%, compared to 0.95% year ago.
In total 1,176 plug-ins were registered (up 62% year-over-year).
The UK market is currently dominated by plug-in hybrids (lead by the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV), which are fueled by changes (decreases) to the Plug-In Car Grant.
937 plug-in hybrids were registered last month compared to just 239 pure electric cars.
The big bump of plug-in car sales in UK is still just ahead, as March is one of the best sales month in the year. One year ago over 6,000 were netted!
With over 3,000 plug-ins delivered in the first two months, and orders taken for 16,000 more (11,000 in February), we are awaiting something truly special!
