This is another very good month for BEV sales, and once again thanks to the Nissan Leaf, totalling 112 registrations in August. Not only the popular hatchback accounts for 2 thirds of BEV registrations but is also in the Irish top 10 !
BEVs accounted for a very impressive 2.8% of the total new car market. Note that besides the Leaf most BEVs are performing quite well. The Jaguar i-Pace is entering the market with 1 registration in August.
Used BEVs imports are still strong with 75 registration (+38.9% vs 2017), best month of the year 2018 so far.
