The data revealed nine out of ten car buyers looked for models with Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) instead of electric vehicles.

Ian Plummer, spokesperson for AutoTrader told drivers were “sticking to what they know”.

He said: “Whilst we saw an upswing in interest for EVs throughout 2020, this didn’t necessarily convert to sales, whereas interest in diesel and petrol vehicles has continued to boom during the pandemic.

“In fact, last month, there was an enormous 200 million advert views for diesel and petrol vehicles combined, compared to just 2.7million views for electric.
