EVs Forged Ahead in New Car Registrations

Electric vehicles sales took almost 15% of the new car market in October, according to new figures released by the Society of motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).

A total of 19,933 all electric vehicles were registered last month, an increase of over 3,800 on the same period last year.

Diesel sales saw the largest drop, down almost 10%.

Year on year (2022/2021) BEV registrations were up from 141,296 to 195,547 a jump of 38.4%.

EVA Scotland Chief Operating Officer Laura Robinson said: “The number of new electric vehicles being registered shows the increasing confidence and growing commitment by drivers to transition to a cheaper, cleaner and more environmentally friendly mode of transport.

“Governments across the UK must do all they can to encourage further growth in the EV market by improving, through public and private partnerships, a robust charging infrastructure capable of providing even greater availability of charge points in every part of the country.”
