UK: Plug-In Car Sales Surge In June 2020, Tesla Model 3 In Top 10

June was the second best month ever with nearly 14,000 new plug-in car registrations.

While the overall passenger car sales in the UK decreased in June by almost 35% year-over-year to 145,377, the plug-in segment is doing surprisingly well.

Some 13,829 new plug-ins were registered in June, which is 192% more than a year ago! Only once did we see a higher result. Moreover, the market share remains exceptionally high this year – 9.5%!

It seems that the plug-in segment will be untouched by the post-coronavirus slowdown, as first there were plenty of orders waiting for fulfillment and consumers seems to be happy with the current set of incentives (from April 2020).

Top models

After two first places (in April and May), Tesla Model 3 was the 9th most popular model in June with 2,517 new registrations.

We guess that it’s still the top-selling BEV model in the country, although the limited ranking does not allow us to extract plug-in sales data for other models (for example, how many Vauxhall Corsa-e out of the #1 Vauxhall Corsa).
