Diesel car sales are falling fast, the same can't be said for EVs and hybrids...

The car sales figures for October are published today by the SMMT and while the overall market is down with a 7% decline over last year, two very clear trends are continuing; diesel car sales are in freefall and EVs and hybrids are in the ascendancy.

Diesel sales are down by over 20% against October last year and even this looks favourable compared to the 30% decline in the year on year numbers. EVs are up month on month by 86% (which might be explained by a scramble to lock in the Government grant before it decreased) and alternatively fuelled vehicle registration are up by 30% and are fast approaching a 10% market share.

With all the major car manufacturers bringing new EV models to market next year, this trend will surely continue.
