Top 10: Best-selling cars in April

New car registrations bounced back in April as paying customers could finally return to recently reopened car showrooms. However, volumes still remained 13 per cent lower than the 10-year average (at just 141,583 vehicles), according to the latest figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).

There was a substantial rise in registrations across all car segments, with plug-in hybrids now accounting for over one in eight vehicles registered. Plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) were even more popular than pure electric vehicles (EVs) — likely due to cuts to the Plug-in Car Grant, which mean EVs costing more than £35,000 are now no longer eligible for Government-backed incentives.

Wow, the media are in overdrive pushing electric/hybrids but joe/joess public are realistic. Not buying into the dream.
I am looking at a Dacia at a realistic price fuelled by gasoline which fills up in 10 minutes and takes me 400 miles. Give me an electric car that does that and cost the same and I am in.
