Ireland: Plug-In Electric Car Sales Double With Nissan LEAF On Top

The Irish market is gradually shifting more towards plug-in hybrids this year.

Ireland, like many other European countries, is experiencing an EV boom. Passenger plug-in car sales are doubling to 522 registrations in August and 5,127 year-to-date.

The market share jumped to a relatively high 11% in August and 6.5% YTD, and despite the super quick expansion of plug-in hybrids, the all-electric vehicles are still holding the majority among the plug-ins.

It’s an open question whether PHEVs (42% of total) will be able to finally beat the BEVs?
