ICE car sales in August make for some disturbing reading for manufacturers

The SMMT has published the car sales figures for August and they make some disturbing reading for the ICE manufacturers; electric cars’ market share rose sharply to 3.4% in August, up 93% year on year. The lingering death of diesel continues as DERV market share shrinks by almost 20% compared to last year.

What is really interesting is the SMMT doesn’t dare mention the name of the manufacturer which accounts for most of the rise in EV sales; Tesla is listed as ‘other’ and even as the Model 3 becomes the third biggest selling car in August, the stats still record ‘other’. Bizarre…

The transition to electric cars is gathering pace and might now be arriving at a point of going mainstream. Charging infrastructure is growing exponentially and 2020 will see the launch of more EVs from the established manufacturers.
