71.5% of January’s car registrations are EVs: Last month, electric vehicle (EV) registrations reached a new high, accounting for 71.5 percent of all automobile registrations reported.

According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), plug-in car sales had another strong month in January.

More than 14,430 battery electric cars (BEVs) and 9,047 plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) were registered, according to the statistics.

According to the research, this equates to 20.4 percent of the market.

According to the SMMT, over 13,490 hybrid vehicles (HEVs) were also sold.

That implies that one-third of all new automobiles on British roads in January were electrified.

Registrations of diesel cars fell by 45.8% last month compared to the same period in 2021, the SMMT said.

“Given the lockdown-impacted January 2021, this month’s figures were always going to be an improvement but it is still reassuring to see a strengthening market.” Said Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive.

“Once again it is electrified vehicles that are driving the growth, despite the ongoing headwinds of chip shortages, rising inflation and the cost-of-living squeeze.”

“2022 is off to a reasonable start, however, and with around 50 new electrified models due for release this year, customers will have an ever greater choice, which can only be good for our shared environmental ambitions.
