U.K. numbers are still preliminary but indicate another leap forward plug-in vehicle sales. Market share continues slightly below 1 %, and should continue like that until the end of the year. The third quarter saw a decrease in growth, to just 30 %, but with the redesigned Mitsublishi Outlander PHEV coming in the last quarter on the year, expect the market to resume a triple-digit growth, with this year total volume expected to double (28.000 units) regarding last year result.
