Apparently a 34% fall in PHEV sales is the fault of HMG’s decision to remove the grant?
I have to say I think that’s unlikely to be the full story?
This time last year there were a number of decent PHEVs available – the Golf and Passat GTE, Audi A3 etron, BMW 330e, Mercedes C350e, etc, etc. Right now – to order today – choice is somewhat more limited.
New PHEVs are coming, lots of them – but they aren’t here quite yet. If sales don’t recover once cars are available to order in sufficient volume – then we can blame the grant – until then surely lack of supply is the more obvious culprit?
