Did you know that PHEV sales are on the rise?
In 2020, the UK Car Sales Sector seen a decline of 29.4 per cent, with the 1.63 million cars sold being the lowest since 1992. This decrease is to be due to the effects of COVID-19 and lockdowns; causing people to stay at home and within their local councils. The bulk of the sales decline in 2020 was attributed to the first lockdown from March-June last year, where many dealerships were shut. During the second lockdown in November last year, dealerships were able to continue offering ‘click-and-collect’ online sales - which will also be allowed during the new lockdown recently introduced in Scotland by the UK government. HOWEVER, we did see a rise in the sales of both electric and plug-in hybrids. It is great to see that more then 10% of car sales within the UK are a plug-in.
Did you know that there are over 1000 publicly available electric vehicle charge points in Scotland? With the average distance between any given location to the nearest charging point is just 2.78 miles in Scotland - compared to the 3.77 in England. There has never been a better time to make the switch.
