Demand For Electric Cars Boosts UK Car Market

2016 has been a successful year for the UK’s new car market thanks to a boom in the popularity of electric vehicles.

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) has today published the latest figures on new car registrations and adoption of electric vehicles is up 3.3% on 2015, with more than 10,000 motorists choosing to go electric.

It adds to a rosy picture for the UK’s automotive industry, with annual registrations on all types of cars climbing for the fifth year in a row to almost 2.7 million.

The number of people choosing to go electric has been welcomed by Tim Payne, CEO of InstaVolt, which is on a mission to install more than 3,000 rapid charging points for electric vehicles in the UK by 2020.
