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