September best ever month for new EV sales

According to data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), September was the best month ever for new electric vehicle sales.

TransportandEnergy.com reports that with a market share of 15.2%, 32,721 battery electric vehicles (BEVs) joined the road in September, reflecting the wide range of models now available and growing consumer appetite.

September performance was just over 5,000 shy of the total number registered during the whole of 2019.

Plug-in hybrid (PHEV) share also grew to 6.4%, meaning more than one in five new cars registered in September was zero-emission capable.

Meanwhile, hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) grew their overall market share from 8.0% in 2020 to 11.6%, with 24,961 registered.
