Commenting on the new vehicle registrations, Brian Cook, Director General SIMI said: “New car sales are still 10% behind pre-Covid 2019 sales. Sales of both light commercial vehicles (LCVs) and heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) have continued to remain sluggish.

“As in the past two years, the electric car segment continues to grow strongly, with 15,241 electric cars sold this year, an increase of 83 percent over last year and almost quadrupling in 2020. Challenging emission reduction targets over the next decade, both at national and EU level, EV (electric vehicle) sales continue to accelerate.In the short term, concerns about both rising energy costs and raw material shortages are likely to slow EV sales growth.

“In this environment it is essential that industry and government work closely together to create an environment where EVs are not only a strong environmental choice but also a cost-effective choice for consumers and businesses. Charging infrastructure and the extension of EV purchase incentives beyond 2023.”
