Plug-in vehicles on the road

Number of battery-electric and plug-in hybrids in the UK

The latest data on plug-in vehicles on the UK’s roads. The chart plots the top ten plug-in hybrid and pure battery-electric cars, vans and taxis that are licensed in the UK. The data is updated quarterly. A plug-in car grant scheme which was introduced in January 2011 was eventually phased out on 14 June 2022. Some grants are still available for plug-in vans and other vehicles.┬áHovering over the lines shows how the cumulative total for each vehicle has changed over time.

This table shows all the plug-in hybrid and pure battery-electric cars, vans and taxis that are licensed in the UK as at the end of each of the last five quarters for which data is available.
