Figures being released today will show the steady advance of electric car sales.
April saw further evidence that more manufacturers are racing to secure a share of the market for new EVs.
New AutoMotive’s monthly data release tracks new car registrations in Great Britain and shows that the market for new EVs is distributed between an increasing number of manufacturers.
Volkswagen took the biggest slice of the EV market last month, over 12%, while Porsche sold the most EVs expressed as a percentage of one-in-three of their registrations.
Ben Nelmes, Head of Policy at New AutoMotive, said, “The race for EV market share is on. We’re seeing an increasing number of car manufacturers trying secure market share. This is good news for consumers: it means more choice of electric cars for those wishing to make the switch and access all the benefits of owning an EV.”
