Mitsubishi Outlander GX5 PHEV

Plug-in electric car sales in the UK continue along the good pace from 2014 and still show us that the UK is one of the quickest growing markets for electric cars.

In January, 1 out of 97 new cars were a plug-in, and with 1,715 new plug-in electric car registrations, the market grow by almost 300%!

Since September, most sales have come from plug-in hybrids. Last month PHEVs reached 1,203 registrations - 12-times more than in January 2014.

All-electric cars are growing at a much slower rate from 325 in 2014 to 512.

February will likely be a weaker month as it has been in years past, but who knows.
