Market share was maintained at 3%
As expected, the plug-in electric car market in the UK was affected by lower incentives and withdrawal of some plug-in hybrids models (not certified to WLTP requirements). Overall, plug-in sales increased but by only 16.3% to 4,855 as the PHEVs barely noted an increase:
- 1,414 BEVs (up 69.5% year-over-year)
- 3,441 PHEVs (up 3.1% year-over-year)
So far this year, sales amount to 54,413, which is 22% more than a year ago. Average market share is over 2.4%.
- 13,940 BEVs (up 10.4% year-over-year)
- 40,473 PHEVs (up 26.7% year-over-year)
