1 In 5 UK Car Sales Now Battery-Electric

According to new data from SMMT, 1 in every 5 car sales in the UK is battery-electric.

The increase in battery car sales is partly due to the number of models now on offer to consumers, with the total increasing 15-fold in the last 11 years alone.

SMMT states that the number of models on sale in the UK right now stands at 140, with a further 50 due to land throughout 2022 - this compared to 9 in 2011.

Mike Hawes, the Chief Executive of SMMT said: "The ever-increasing number of electric-vehicle models launched by manufacturers since 2011 shows just how far Britain has come, with industry investment stimulating innovation at an ever-faster rate.

With almost 200 electrified models expected to be available by the end of the year, manufacturers are turning ambitions for zero and ultra-low-emissions mobility into a reality, while motorists’ demand for these vehicles increases month by month."
