Fifth of new cars on road are electric | Business

About one in five new cars sold in Britain in November were fully electric plug-in vehicles, the highest proportion recorded in a normal month outside lockdowns.

Of the new cars registered last month, more than 20,000, or almost 19 per cent of the total, were zero-emission vehicles, according to New AutoMotive, a green motoring consultancy, which released its figures before the publication of official industry data today.

While the 20,000 is, numerically, not higher than the 32,000 battery-electric vehicles registered in September, a key month for sales when number plates change, it does demonstrate the direction of travel: it is more than double the number of zero-emission vehicles that were being sold a year ago.

It also means that pure electric vehicles are now
