Demand for BEVs escalated 122% in November: Market share for battery electric vehicles (BEVs) & plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) soared by 122.4% and 76.9% respectively in November.

That’s reported from the most recent figures by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), that says BEVs recorded their third-highest ever monthly share of registrations, at 9.1% of the entire market, at the same time the PHEV share rose to 6.8%.

That translates to a connected total of over 18,000 new zero-emission adequate cars joining Britain’s roads.

Fewer than 16,000 new diesel cars were registered while petrol car demand slipped by about 42% last month, according to the report.

The UK new car market saw a decrease as registrations in November fell 27.4% year-on-year & 42,840 fewer new cars joined British streets.

Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, stated: “Compared with the spring lockdown, manufacturers, dealers and consumers were all better prepared to adjust to constrained trading conditions.

“But with £1.3 billion worth of new car revenue lost in November alone, the importance of showroom trading to the UK economy is evident and we must ensure they remain open in any future Covid restrictions.”
