Irish PHEVs Sales – January 2019

As with Full EVs, Plug-in Hybrids (PHEVs) sales are seriously growing in 2019 so far, with 301 registrations in January (109 for January 2018) and a market share of 0.93%.

The affordable Kia Niro PHEV is logically leading the segment this month, followed by the BMW 530e and Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. Note the arrival of the Land Rover brand in the PHEV market with the Range Rover and the Range Rover Sport.

Most models sales are growing but note that the decrease in sales of the BMW 330e and i3 Rex is due to the fact that these are no longer produced (registrations are stock vehicles). The new 330e will be launched this summer.

The VW/Audi models are no longer on sale since the WLTP/Euro6c switch last year but the facelifted Passat should be launched at the end of 2019 and a GTE version will make a come back, with a bigger battery.
