United Kingdom – December 2014 & Full Year

U.K. was among the fastest growing plug-in vehicle markets, worldwide. Contributing: New, generous schemes for writing down company fleet vehicles emitting below 95 g CO2/km (100% first-year allowance for depreciation), availability of new entries, a rapid expansion in charging infrastructure, and higher awareness. Growth rates varied by month, but at the end of 2014, sales stood at 13900 units, 3,7 times the volume of 2013. Plug-in vehicle volume was still only 0,5 % of the U.K. light vehicle market.

Big Gains from Plug-In Hybrids

Much of the 10200 unit volume increase was enabled by PHEV sales, which were 7 times higher than the year before. Plug-in Hybrids stood for 47 % of sales in 2014, up from 24 % in 2013. Pure EV volume surged by 160 % to ca 7300 units. There is still some uncertainty around the final numbers by model, but it's close.
