What are the UK's most popular EV models?

 

As of the end of September 2017, the latest figures available from the Department for Transport show that Mitsubishi's Outlander PHEV is the most popular plug-in vehicle by some margin. With more than 30,500 units sold it has been the best-selling plug-in car for more than two years now, and is clearly ahead of the second most popular plug-in car, the Nissan Leaf. Almost 19,000 Leafs have been sold in the UK though, comfortably ahead of the Mercedes Benz C 350e which rapidly climbed into third place, and putting the Nissan in first position in terms of pure-electric vehicles.

 

The Mercedes Benz C 350e has racked up almost 9,000 sales in the space of two years, seeing the PHEV push the BMW i3 down to fourth place in the best-sellers table. The i3 is ahead of the fifth-placed BMW 330e, with the executive saloon - like the above Mercedes - proving exeptionally popular with company car drivers.

 

Rounding out the top 10 are Tesla's Model S, the Renault Zoe, Volkswagen's Golf GTE, the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine and the Nissan e-NV200 in that order.

Plug-in hybrids have rapidly taken the majority share of the electric car market - currently sitting at 66%. From accounting for less than a third of plug-in sales at the beginning of 2014, Two and a half years later they represent two thirds the overall number of plug-in cars sold by the end of Q3 2017.

A key indicator as to the strength of the UK market for electric vehicles is the number of segments covered by the electric models currently available. While the main nine electric cars available in 2011 covered four body styles - city cars, small family cars, small vans and sports coupés - the more than 70 plug-in cars and vans available in 2017 now include superminis, large family cars, hatchbacks, estates, SUVs, executive models, and medium-sized vans.

 

Previous experience of introducing new technologies into the automotive market shows that having a broad range of both models and body styles is key to ensuring strong uptake of new power-trains. With the large number of brands and classes now available, the EV market has a strong base on which to continue to grow.
