New statistics show EV progress.

November 8, 2023

This week's statistics from Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show that electric vehicle (EV) registrations continue to surge, with October seeing electrified cars (including hybrids and plug-in hybrids) making up 37.6% of new registrations. 

Hybrid electric vehicles jumped 24.6%, plug-ins saw the highest growth at 60.5%, and battery electric vehicles (BEVs) grew for the 42nd consecutive month by 20.1%. However, BEVs accounted for just 15.6% of the market share, with private registrations making up less than a quarter, highlighting the need for more consumer incentives.

EV charge point installations are on the rise, with a record number set up in Q3, yet the distribution remains uneven, heavily favouring London and the South East. This calls for more equitable public charging solutions, including help for those without private charge points and binding targets to ensure infrastructure keeps pace with vehicle uptake.

According to Zapmap as of the end of October 2023, there were around 1,489,000 plug-in cars, with around 920,000 battery-electric vehicles and 560,000 PHEVs registered. Last month, 1,634 net new EV charging devices were added to the Zapmap database making a total of 79,564 chargers across 30,360 locations - a growth of 45% over the last 12 months.

Things are moving in the right direction but there is still much to be done!
