Thanks to a new article on RAC Foundation, i can now post a ranking regarding UK's First Half of the Year sales.
An amazing 13.000 plug-ins were sold in the first half of the year in the UK, trouncing the 4.000-something of the same period last year, and is less than a thousand units away from breaking the record result set last year, like, in the whole of 2014!
As a result, the EV Share is now at around 1%, almost double of the 0,56% of last year...
Looking at the models ranking, the top two continue miles ahead of the competition, together own two thirds of the market (49% for Mitsu's SUV, 18% for the Leaf), with the BMW i3 still in Third, but it has been assisting to a sales slowdown, which might have to do with a couple of new models, like the #6 Audi A3 e.Tron and its sporty cousin, the #7 VW Golf GTE, two cars that have everything to succeed in the Old Albion.
Regarding the rest of the ranking, the BMW i8 dropped one position to #5 (Still, is its highest position in the Top 8 markets), to the benefit of the Renault Zoe, now #4, while the Model S also dropped one position to #8.
In this more detailed ranking, a reference for the good performance of the Mercedes models: The S500e plug-in hybrid is #10 with 124 units, the Mercedes B-Class ED is now #15 and looking to reach a Top 10 place until year end, and finally the C350e plug-in hybrid has just landed to register its first 19 units.

Here is a website that has all the registration and licensing figures for the U.K. except for Northern Ireland. Includes all cars plus commercial vehicles and motorcycles. It is called: "How many left?"
If you want to look up Nissan Leaf, go to the (A-Z index) A list of all the Nissan models will come up. Choose the "Leaf" button. Then, select: "See statistics for all NISSAN LEAF models combined."
A graph will appear. Just roll over the blue dots with your mouse to get information. The Tax/SORN and Registrations buttons have the most information.
The Registrations Tab has all the new, first time registrations. The Tax/SORN Tab is tells many license plates were purchased. Don't worry about SORN. It means Statutory Off Road Notification. That's when the car's owner chooses not to license the car for some reason. The (Tax/SORN) graph shows that there are currently 9.310 Leaf licensed in U.K. as of 30 June, 2015.
I looked up all the cars in the RAC report and found all of them except for the Mercedes and Volvo. The New Registration figures from this site are slightly higher than the RAC figures, To use the site you must have a list of all the electric cars currently being sold in U.K. (not including Northern Ireland) at the present time. Some electric models are harder to find than others and it is some work to look them all up.
If you are interested , here is the link. The statistics only go as far as 30 June 2015.

Thanks, i will look into itDelete
The new registrations from Leaf should be 2964 :ReplyDelete
I think the numbers from RAC are inventory, but inventory could be lower than registrations because of exports, temporary resting (car dealer makes a one day registrations) ...
Updated, thanks for the input!Delete
