sales of new electric cars decline

Electric vehicle sales in the UK fell by 33.7% in January and February 2018 compared with the same two months last year, according to data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

In January 2018, 635 EVs were registered – 37.1% less than the 1010 in January 2017.

As for February 2018, 355 new EVs were sold across the country, representing a 26.5% decrease from February 2017’s figure of 483 registrations.

The drop has been attributed to high pricing, limits on range, availability of charging points and uncertainty of residual values.
