    UK LEADS EU EV SALES RISE

    UK leads Europe in electric car growth; Registrations up 300 percent in the UK and 36.6 percent across the continent

    James Vincent, February 6, 2015 (The Verge)

    “Europe's interest in electric cars is slowly growing, with registrations of electric and hybrid vehicles up 36.6 percent last year. Of the major EU markets, the UK saw the biggest growth, with registrations up a massive 300 percent. The UK was followed by Germany (up 70 percent) and France (up 30 percent).
