Electric Car Sales In UK Up Almost 500% In February
February was the 36th consecutive month of car sales growth in UK – registrations went up by 12% year-over-year to 76,958.
The numbers themselves are low as February is one of the slowest sales months of the year ahead of a number plate change in March.
Despite this, electric cars grew like crazy by 497% year-over-year to 728 new registrations. Market share was 0.95%.
There were 216 BEVs (up 167%) and 512 PHEVs (up 1,066.7%).
As previously mentioned, February is a slow month, so now we look forward to what we hope to be a record-setting March. 5,000? Maybe 7,000? We’ll find out soon enough.
