With the WLTP rules now in place, a number of European countries see their new car sales dropping from this month of September, caused by important pre-WLTP stock registered as these cars had to be registered before the 1st September. The Irish market dropped 17.9% after being in positive territory in August. But BEVs are not concerned by these changes resulting sales still up 106.2 % compared to the same month last year. The Nissan Leaf is once again the star of the segment, and once again is part of the Irish top 10 with a 7th place ! The Renault Zoé is still doing well and catching up with the Hyundai Ioniq that has seen zero registration this month. BEV have represented 3.09% of the Irish car market, a new record !
Used imports are still progressing, 42.9% year over year, with the usual dominance of the Nissan Leaf.
