The UK saw plugin electric vehicles taking 13.7% market share in January 2021, up 2.3× from January 2020, and already well above the 10.7% annual share of 2020.

January’s 13.7% combined plugin result comprised an even split between full battery electrics and plugin hybrids, which is a swing towards PHEVs from 2020’s average weightings.

In the context of lacklustre overall auto sales, petrol-only combustion sales were down in volume by 50.6% year-on-year, and diesel-only combustion sales suffered a huge 62.1% drop.
