Following the encouraging growth statistics from @European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA), UK data published today shows registrations of new battery-electric passenger cars and commercial vehicles in the country have shown remarkable year on year gains in July.

Today’s new @Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) statistics show that, overall, the new car market in the UK saw the best July performance since 2020. And e-mobility uptake showed an equally positive trajectory:

Sales of battery-electric cars grew by 87.9% in July year-on-year.
One new battery-electric car was registered every 60 seconds in July. The SMMT also stated that, according to the latest market outlook, this will be one every 50 seconds by the end of this year, and one every 40 seconds by the end of 2024.
Market share for battery-electric cars was 16% in the month – similar to the share seen through the first half of 2023.

The July data for battery-electric commercial vehicle registrations is equally as positive, showing very similar percentage gains:

Battery-electric van registrations rose by a remarkable 94.6% in July compared to July 2022.
So far, 10,292 battery-electric vans have been registered in 2023 – a 16.1% year-on-year increase.
However, battery-electric van market share has slightly decreased, from 5.4% to 5.2% in the year to-date.

While both sectors are demonstrating the shift to electric power is well underway, the industry must continue to accelerate its ongoing efforts to further enhance the product and infrastructure offer, encouraging more and more consumers and businesses to opt for electric vehicles as a convenient and efficient mobility solution for their needs.
