Top 10 – 2020 best selling Irish PHEVs


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.

10th – Volvo XC60 T8 – 73 units (+62%)

Despite sales up 62%, the XC60 is down 1 spot over 2019.

9th – Volvo XC90 T8 – 76 units (-7%)

The original PHEV SUV is still in the game, but not as popular as it used to be with sales down 7%.

8th – Land Rover Range Rover Sport – 89 units (-47%)

Important decrease of sales for the Range Rover Sport this year, as it was 3rd best selling PHEV last year.

7th – Volvo XC40 T5 – 93 units

New for 2020, the compact XC40 is logically beating its XC60 and XC90 siblings.

6th – Kia Ceed – 110 units

Affordable PHEV at around €30,000, the Ceed found its first 110 drivers.

5th – BMW X5 – 186 units

This new generation of X5 PHEV is a hit with no less than 186 units sold, representing more than half of total X5 sales.

4th – Ford Kuga – 228 units

Also new for 2020 and possible winner for 2021, the Kuga didn’t miss its launch last summer.

3rd – Mitsubishi Outlander – 237 units (+18%)

The now ageing Outlander is down one spot but still doing well with sales up 18% to 237 units.

2nd – BMW 3er – 345 (+337%)

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.

1st – Kia Niro – 496 units (+16%)

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 ?
