UK hybrid and electric car registrations up 17.5% in a year

Sales of electric vehicles in the UK rose significantly last year, according to new industry figures that also reveal the new car market recorded its best year since 2007.

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) said that 2.26m vehicles were registered in the UK in 2013 – a 10.8% rise on 2012.

Some 32,727 hybrid and electric plug-in cars were registered, representing an above average rise of 17.5%.

The SMMT also notes that in 2011, plug-in vehicles only accounted for 4.7% of all alternative fuel vehicle sales. This increased to 12.3% in 2013. The sales of pure electric cars, meanwhile, went up by 99% this year when compared to 2012.
