Plug-In Hybrids Drive British Market To 2.0% Share In January

FEB 22 2018 BY MARK KANE 3

Plug-in Electric Car Registrations in UK – January 2018

For plug-ins, the year began positively in the UK as sales improved in an overall declining market (by 6.3%) where diesels continue to downfall (-25.6%).

In total, 3,266 new plug-ins were registered last month in the UK, which is 23.6% more than one year ago at a solid 2.0% market share.

All the growth comes from plug-in hybrids, but we hope that deliveries of new Nissan LEAF soon will change this situation.

  • 635 BEVs (down 37 percent year-over-year)
  • 2,631 PHEVs (up 61 percent year-over-year)

Overall, alternatively fuelled vehicles (AFVs) were the fastest growing segment of the auto market in UK – 9,020 (up 23.9%).

So I see December was 3% market share, massive drop to 2%. Why and was December more BEVs vs PHEVs?

Also the chart shows March and September as high sales months so looking forward to seeing March sales with LEAF in full production. Although I doubt Tesla Model 3 will be available by September there is some chance it will be.

Dream on
M3 will not be here until 2019 as last production as RHD

Exactly: RHD will slow it down.

Canada, China, Norway and others to serve first.

3 didn’t shrink enough to be very successful in Japan, so although the UK should eventually be a good market, Tesla won’t be in a rush.
