UK's overall new car registrations in September (one of two plate-change months) hit new high of 469,696.

However, plug-in vehicles also noted a great month with 6,263 new registrations - the second best result ever, up 53% year-over-year.  The monthly result gave plug-ins a 1.3% market share for the month.

September was especially good for plug-in hybrids, which grew by 69%, up to 4,135 registrations, while all-electric also increased by 37% - up to 2,128.

Another great achievement for the UK is crossing the mark of 75,000 plug-in cars on the road registered through the program all-time.  Of note/update (hat tip to EMC2):  We should also note that total plug-ins on the road number about 85,000 overall.
