Plug-In Car Registrations Up 350% in UK
SEP 18 2014 BY MARK KANE
Plug-in vehicle registrations in the UK fell down to 515 in August. However, this is still a 348% improvement over the 115 sold in August of last year.
Not bad on a market that’s growing by 9.4% as a whole (for the 30th consecutive month).
With 72,163 new cars registered, EVs have some 0.7% market share.
August is a slow month, and according to The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders Limited, just 3% of the year’s sales occur in August typically. September brings the big bang with 18% of total yearly sales, so now we expect a new high sales record for EVs this month.
Maybe it will be even 4-5-times higher than in August like in 2013, which would mean that 2,000 is possible?
