A new EV registration rate increase of just 7% year-over-year in the UK makes us fear that one of the longest uninterrupted periods of growth in all of the global industry may soon come to an end.
But hopefully not.
In November, the British market saw 1.36% of all new registrations to be plug-in vehicles (1.31% year ago).
In total, 2,510 plug-ins were registered.
Breaking down the numbers further shows that BEVs are mostly to blame for the lower than expected result:
- 605 BEVs (down 22%)
- 1,905 PHEVs (up 23%)
