Irish EV Registrations – H1 and June 2023

Irish EV Registrations – H1 and June 2023

First half 2023

Plug-in vehicles accounted for 26.5% of all new cars registered in the first half of this year, comprised of:

  • 14,307 (18.5%) BEVs, and;
  • 6,252 (8.0%) PHEVs.

BEV numbers are up 69% on the same period last year (8,446), while PHEV numbers are up 25% (from 4,959). This puts BEV registrations alone close to non-plug-in hybrid registration numbers, which itself are slightly lower than diesel registration numbers; it will be interesting to see whether either will be surpassed over the second half of the year.

Additional registrations from used imports during the first half of the year accounted for a further:

  • 1,972 BEVs, and;
  • 1,115 PHEVs.

The top-5 registered new BEVs for the first half of the year were:

  1. Volkswagen ID.4
  2. Tesla Model Y
  3. Hyundai Ioniq 5
  4. Skoda Enyaq
  5. Tesla Model 3

Both ID.4 & Model Y also make it into the top-10 new registrations of all passenger vehicles too – at number 5 & 10 respectively.

 

June

Plug-in vehicles accounted for 51.9% of all new cars registered in June, once more proportionately up on the prior month as others hold off for a 232 licence plate, comprised of:

  • 1,441 (48.1%) BEVs, and;
  • 115 (3.8%) PHEVs.

Additional registrations from used imports in June accounted for a further:

  • 340 BEVs, and;
  • 218 PHEVs.

  1. Tesla Model Y
