BEV sales in the UK are increasing very quickly (by 81% year-over-year), but it's not enough to compensate for the fall of plug-in hybrids

The British plug-in electric car market develops in two ways - all-electric cars continue to increase at a very high pace, while the plug-in hybrid cars significantly decrease.

In May, sales amounted to 4,352 (down 14.2 percent) as the collapse of PHEVs prevailed growth on the BEV side. Overall market share is almost 2.4 percent, down compared to over 2.6 percent year ago.

  • BEVs 1,990 (up 81.1 percent year-over-year)
  • PHEVs: 2,362 (down 40.6 percent year-over-year)
  • Total: 4,352 (down 14.2 percent year-over-year) at market share of almost 2.4 percent

We are eagerly waiting on the first deliveries of the Tesla Model 3 in the UK, scheduled for June, which in theory could stop the fall.
