Demand for clean vehicles soars in weakest February for car sales since 1959
Updated: Mar 23, 2021
Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) seem to be the only ‘survivors’ of the weakest February for car sales since 1959.
BEVs and PHEVs market share increases whilst diesel and petrol cars decrease
A new Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) report suggests one-in-eight registrations that took place last month were for BEVs and PHEVs.
During a month when the UK new car market declined by 35.5%, BEVs and PHEVs took a combined 13.0% market share for the month, up from 5.7% in February 2020.
The report also shows sales of diesel and petrol cars fell by 61% and 44% respectively last month.
