Two notable firsts for European EV sales in June
EVs of any hue outsell pure ICE vehicles
Some in the EV world would argue that hybrids, plug-in or not, are little more than ICE vehicles with a slightly lower carbon footprint. Certainly, in the long term, having two different technologies under the same bonnet screams of inefficiencies.
Nonetheless, as the transition towards BEVs and away from ICEs gathers pace, hybrids do at least represent a statement of intent by the consumer. And they clearly play a role in tackling some of the concerns drivers have around range and charging, particularly for those that more regularly do the type of driving that test the existing BEV infrastructure.
