Irish PHEV Sales – January 2020

The PHEV market starts 2020 with a more important growth than the BEV one. It went from 301 units registered in January 2019 up 86% to 560 units registered last month, now representing 1.8% of the market.

The Kia Niro (146 units, +106%) is still leading the segment with a slim advantage over the BMW 330e. No less than 23 different PHEVs have been purchased. New for this month : The Skoda Superb iV and the Kia Ceed PHEV (available in hatch and estate versions). More popular PHEVs are coming on the market in 2020 and the generous incentives often put these financially in par with petrol/diesel, this segment will therefore grow a lot and it could become bigger than the BEV market.

Used imports are still progressing (+12%), and much higher than for BEVs. Misubishi Outlander imports are slowing down a lot but almost all the other are progressing, especially the BMW 530e.
