British Plug-In Electric Car Market Barely Up In February
Plug-in electric car sales in the UK took a break from growth in February as only a minor 6.7% increase was noted last month at 1.9% market share.
It seems that consumers await new all-electric cars. We assumes that most of the European LEAFs went to Norway, and this is why BEV sales plunged in the UK due to a LEAF shortage.
In total, 1,543 new plug-in were registered at 1.9% market share.
- 355 BEVs (down 26.5 percent year-over-year)
- 1,190 PHEVs (up 23,3 percent year-over-year)
Overall, British car sales decreased by 2.8% in February (diesel models we’re down significantly).
In March, there will be the usual increase in demand due to plate-change, so hopefully a new EV record will be set.
