EV Statistics - October 2023
For the third month, Polestar beats Tesla, and looking at the raw data it’s by quite a margin (30% more views for Polestar 2 than Tesla 3). This is based on a rolling 3-month average, so is it possible Polestar 2 will be the most searched car across the PINK Salary Exchange platform, on average, for the whole year? Roll on the Christmas special dashboard where we’ll name the winners and losers for the whole year.
The top manufacturer is based on just the month of October and was won by Audi, probably as a result of a number of special offers from PINK on Audi EVs in the month.
EV market share was slightly down in October, at just under 16%, but still up by 20% year-on-year. In total, around 928 thousand EVs are now on UK roads, and with December always a big month for EV registrations, we’re still close to the magic 1m in 2023.
