Record Year for EVs

Posted in General News on Tuesday, November 16th, 2021

Electric vehicles (EVs) are set for a record year despite an overall car market drop. More new electric vehicles are expected to be sold this year than the whole of 2010-2019 combined. Buyer take up is expected to be around 287,000 of the latest zero-emission capable cars by the end of the year, which equates to one in six new cars. Combined sales from 2010 to 2019 were only 271,962 in comparison. This shows a clear upward trend in consumers going for a more environmentally friendly choice when choosing a vehicle.

When you combine sales of EVs with hybrid electric more than a quarter of the new car market has been electrified.

Overall the car market is seeing a slump in sales which can be explained by months of delays and interruptions in production. Many dealers say that they don’t have enough new cars to meet demand. Buyers are on average waiting six to twelve months for their new vehicle.
