Plug-in hybrid vehicules have show a great growth in 2020 (+87% to 2491 units and 2.82% market share) thanks to incentives and a choice of over 40 different models. Here are the 10 best selling Irish PHEVs for 2020. No less than 8 of these vehicles are SUV/Crossovers.
Despite sales up 62%, the XC60 is down 1 spot over 2019.
The original PHEV SUV is still in the game, but not as popular as it used to be with sales down 7%.
Important decrease of sales for the Range Rover Sport this year, as it was 3rd best selling PHEV last year.
New for 2020, the compact XC40 is logically beating its XC60 and XC90 siblings.
Affordable PHEV at around €30,000, the Ceed found its first 110 drivers.
This new generation of X5 PHEV is a hit with no less than 186 units sold, representing more than half of total X5 sales.
Also new for 2020 and possible winner for 2021, the Kuga didn’t miss its launch last summer.
The now ageing Outlander is down one spot but still doing well with sales up 18% to 237 units.
The BMW 330e is in its second generation and it sells pretty well with 345 units registered in 2020, representing 45% share of all 3-series ! Not bad for a car that exists in only 1 power train and in saloon bodystyle only.
For the second year in a row, the Kia Niro is the king of PHEVs in 2020, but also is the only vehicle present in both PHEVs and BEVs top 10s. Which PHEV will challenge the Kia next year ? Ford Kuga ? Renault Captur ?
