Latest UK data shows sales of electric cars have more than doubled in 12 months and two in three new Jaguars sold are now fully electric.
This data is from New AutoMotive’s Electric Car Count – the most up-to-date and comprehensive electric car sales data in the UK.
Ben Nelmes, Head of Policy & Research, at New AutoMotive said, “Our latest electric car sales data shows that more consumers than ever are choosing to buy electric cars and EV market share has more than doubled since February 2021.
“It’s great to see so many motorists discovering the benefits of electric cars, particularly the savings people can make on fuel at a time of rising petrol and diesel prices.”
He added, “The biggest barrier today is the limited supply of vehicles and people are being put off by long waiting lists. This means people might stick with their old polluting car or, worse, buy a new petrol or diesel car and lock in another 14 years of pollution before the car is scrapped.
“Manufacturers need to increase the supply of pure electric vehicles to the UK, but they need Ministers to adopt an ambitious California-style ZEV mandate that prioritizes and instills confidence in UK-based manufacturing.”
