    Very nice! It would be fitting to also note that Ireland has broken the 1% barrier in November too. 1.02%. But it’s an empty victory.

    7 plug-ins sold out of barely more than 700 sold in total last month. It’s still 1%.

    1. offib says:

      Correction: Around 780 in total were sold where 8 plug-ins were sold to break the 1% barrier.

    It would be nice to see a break down of sales by make and model.

    190 all electrics registered in Denmark in November out of 15050 cars registeret in total. This means that all electric cars accounted for 1,254% of registrations in November. Source:
