For the 182 plate season, Irish BEV Sales are up a massive 247% in July, to 386 units (compared to 111 last year). The growth is solely due to the registration of 305 Nissan Leaf, showing the huge interest in this model, and probably an adequate supply! Not only it’s the first time so many new EVs are registered in a single month but the Leaf is in the Irish top 30 with over 1% market share. So far this year 915 new BEVs have been registered, which is more than the whole 2017 year (622 registrations in total).
Used imports registrations are much more stable, with a growth of 6.7% over last year, to 48 units.
