Plug-In Vehicle Market Share In UK Hits New High Of 1.83% In June

The number of new plug-in registrations stood at 4,444 (up 38% year-over-year).

Interestingly, two thirds of the sales fell to plug-in hybrids, a relative anomaly to the rest of the world’s PHEV-to-BEV splits:

  • 1,466 BEVs (up 46 percent year-over-year)
  • 2,978 PHEVs (up 34 percent year-over-year)

In the first half of this year, around 22,350 new plug-ins have been registered (nearly 15% more than year ago), good for an average 1.6% market share.

It would be a bit higher but due to RHD new models usually arrive a lot later than to continental Europe.

Can’t wait for Leaf 2.0 made in Sunderland.

Quad 4 or 4 * 4s nice #.

Keep going Electric Britain. Your island is under threat from Global Warming.

It’s lot easier to convert the island into Electric Transport rather than the continental Europe.

This is what exponential growth looks like – double market share every 2 years. So 4% by 2020 – 8 % by 2022 – 16% by 2024

Would be nice to see this. The trend has been 0.3% market share gain each year (and that includes PHEVs) so its possible we could get to 2% next year with the help of the new Leaf. As ever a huge amount hinges on the model 3. Tesla has been doing well in the UK and things could massively take off when the RHD version arrives.
