Sales of electric vehicles reached a record high last month, accounting for one in every 12 new cars purchased in the UK.
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders said hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure electric cars made up 8% of the overall market.
The number of total vehicles registered was up 23% on the same period in 2017.
But SMMT’s chief executive warned “it would be wrong to view the market as booming”.
