The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) is expected to release the latest data on new car registrations (June 2020) early next week. However, according to Car Dealer magazine, the market expectation is that the decline will not be as severe as witnessed in May 2020 or previous months in 2020, as dealers in England returned to business in June 2020. Expectations are for a 35% market decline.
We at e-zoomed expect battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) to continue to have performed well in June 2020, as has been the case for previous months in 2020.
A Reminder Of The Results From March 2020, April 2020 & May 2020
May 2020 witnessed a continued increase in the registration of battery-electric vehicles (BEVs), despite a significant contraction in the sales of petrol and diesel internal combustion engine (ICE) cars. Petrol new car registrations were down by a whopping 90.5% in May 2020, compared to May 2019. Diesel performed even worse, with a 93% decline. Of greater consequence is the significant change in market share for internal combustion engine cars. Diesel market share decreased from 26.7% to 17% between May 2019 and May 2020 and petrol market share declined from 63,7% to 55.1%.
April 2020 witnessed a market decline of 97.3% and March 2020 a decline of 44.4%. However BEVs only declined by 9.7% in April 2020 and increased by 197.4% in March 2020.
