As we saw this month in the US, the overall British auto market shrink by nearly 5% in June, while plug-in sales continued to still rise at a decent pace; hitting a new record market share of 1.83%.
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.
