UK: Kia Niro EV Was #1 BEV In October, MG Plug-In Share Surges

Kia and MG enjoy high electric car sales in the UK.

Kia revealed that its Niro EV (e-Niro) model was the top-selling all-electric car in the UK in October (which closed with 17,110 new plug-ins, including 9,335 BEVs).

The South Korean EV noted 833 delivers (about 8.9% of total BEVs). 520 of them were sold via fleet channels, while the remaining 313 were delivered to retail customers.

According to Kia, it perfectly demonstrates the benefit of the zero percent benefit-in-kind taxation on BEVs. Since it was introduced in April 2020, the BEV market is doing great.
