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

Thu Feb 22, 2018 5:11 pm


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). . . .
