After several years of lacklustre plug-in car sales, the UK’s automotive industry has reported a record third quarter to the year, with more than 5,000 plug-in car grants being awarded to Brits keen to dump the pump in favour of an electric car.

As data from the UK Government shows, the number of plug-in vehicle grants awarded between July and September of this year account for more than twice the number of grants handed out in the previous quarter of 2014. What’s more, they equal around one third of all plug-in vehicle grants awarded by the Government since the scheme started in 2010.
