The figures for October have been published.

Tesla is still unrecognised as a significant brand - classified under the "Other Imports" category.

Notable is the YTD for BEVs of 28,259 compared to last year 12,555.

Going in the right direction, although “mild hybrid” (non-plugin) diesel are overtaking BEV

where are we on the Osborne effect graph now?

Tesla aren’t named because, AIUI, they aren’t a member of the SMMT

Not sure there is anything better coming to the UK market in the near future.
Any non-Tesla buyer will have to join the queue with the Ipace's etc at the woefully inadequate and unreliable public chargers.
The fast, reliable and expanding (well it was) Supercharger network was a key factor in my buying decision.

Ah, sorry, I meant EV versus ICE

If you ask me again in about 7 weeks, I would say we would be about where it says 2020 on your graph!

Actually looking at the latest SMMT forecast it's clear they don't have a clue.
They forecast for 2019:
  • BEV registrations to rise 114.1%, taking market share to 1.4%, from 0.7% in 2018.
Well by their figures BEVs are already up by 151.8% with a 2.2% market share

They forecast for 2020:
  • BEV registrations to rise 89.3%, pushing market share up to 2.9%.

    Someone needs to tell them about 0% BIK !

Not sure where the "half" of 1.5 will be in 2020 :)

As ever, with Tesla, history no indicator of future, and supposition often miles from actuality (which can be in either Good or Bad direction)

e.g. Existing chargers recently made faster "overnight", so more cars-per-hour throughput on existing stalls.

Looking at the past 12 months posts on 'EV drivers' work forum (including the charge point queuing), the trend seems mostly flat (up to maybe last month). I think we have 1 MS and 1 M3 right now, many of the others being PHEV. We're at the front of the adoption curve (tech company), and still there is not a big visibility of EVs - M3 might start to change that, I think there are a few more on order.

Looking out onto my works car-park of about 250 cars I can see two BEV's ( one being mine) and about 5 or 6 hybrids.

I am the only person who runs no ICE cars in my family and friends circle, indeed I don't know of any others in that circle whom own a BEV.
