Birmingham Is The UK’s Electric Cars Capital
Just about one per 500 cars (0.2%) on British roads today is an all-electric, plug-in hybrid or hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, according to Department for Transport data (as of Q1 2016).
Officially, the total number of plug-in registrations at the end of the March 2016 was 57,207, while after May, that number exceeded 63,000 out of ~31.4 million cars in service cars.
The highest concentration (discounting anomalies due to small volume areas) is in Birmingham, where we find 5,449 plug-in vehicles on the road, some 4-5 times above national average at 0.92% (Q1).
