Ireland has 29% electric new cars and 37% plug-in hybrids.

Sales of electric vehicles are increasing in Ireland, as they are in many other European nations, but they are booming there considerably more than is typical. In the land of the leprechauns, plugin vehicle registrations made up 36.66% of all new vehicle registrations in September. 7.35% of vehicles were plug-in hybrids, while 29.31% were fully electric.

In the first three quarters of this year, plugin hybrid registrations were practically identical to those in the first three quarters of 2021 (7,439 this year against 7,452 last year), but full-electric car sales nearly doubled (14,513 this year versus 7,819 last year). Full electrics made up 14.3% of the Irish auto market overall in the first nine months of the year, while plugin hybrids made up 7.33% of the market. This means that 21.6% of the nation’s brand-new cars had a plug.

In the first nine months of 2022, a dominant German mass-market vehicle led the top three best-selling full electric vehicles, which were then followed by Korean and American models. They included:

2,765 registrations and 19.1% of the BEV market for the Volkswagen ID.4
1,147 registrations for the Hyundai IONIQ 5, or 7.9% of the BEV market,
1,023 registrations for the Tesla Model 3, or 7.0% of the BEV market.
The three most popular fully electric vehicles in sales in September were the well-known:
In Ireland, sales of pure BEVs were made up 25.4% by Tesla Model 3 (472 registrations).

VW ID.4 (384 registrations, 20.7% of sales of pure BEVs),

Kia Niro EV (7.4% of sales were pure BEVs; 138 registrations).
