Electric Car Sales In Britain Accelerating
Electric car sales in the UK jumped by 25% in Q3 to a record high, according to government figures.
New registrations under the government's £5,000 grant scheme were at 1,149, the highest number since it started in January 2011 and up 25% on Q2.
The news comes as a major player in the market, Renault-Nissan, admitted the company will miss its electric car target. Carlos Ghosn, chief executive of both Renault and Nissan, told the FT that the car companies would miss their target of selling 1.5m electric vehicles between them by the end of 2016, and would be more likely to hit it in 2020 or 2021.
