Plug-In EV Car Sales Hit Record Market Share In The UK: 5.8%

Electric Cars

Sales of all-electric cars more than tripled in November, while plug-in hybrids increased by not 35% year-over-year.

While the overall British car marked shrunk in November by 1.3% to 156,621, the plug-in car sales are up in all stats.

First of all, the total number of new passenger plug-in car registrations amounted to 9,014, which is close to twice the result from 2018!

Moreover, the market share improved to an all-time record of nearly 5.8% with a pretty high balance between BEVs and PHEVs:

  • BEVs 4,652 (up 229% year-over-year) at market share of 3.0%
  • PHEVs: 4,362 (up 34.8% year-over-year) at market share of 2.8%
  • Total: 9,014 (up 93.8% year-over-year) at market share of almost 5.8%

One more positive result is that plug-ins were selling better than conventional hybrids (7,038 and 4.5% market share), while the total xEV share is at 10.2%.
