Irish BEVs and PHEVs used imports – May 2019


Used BEVs imports are still down, to just 38 vehicles in May, the lowest since the beginning of the year, and also down 45% over May 2018. On the other hand, PHEVs imports are growing 145% year on year, still led by the popular Mitsubishi Outlander and very accessible out-of-lease German premium cars, available for some well below GBP 20,000, which combined with a low VRT make themselves very competitive in the Irish market where such vehicles have been sold in very little numbers!
