Australia’s best-selling PHEVs halfway through 2024

Posted on July 4, 2024Comments Off on Australia’s best-selling PHEVs halfway through 2024

Plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) aren’t anywhere near as popular as conventional hybrids or battery-electric vehicles, but they’re growing in popularity.

In the first half of 2024, sales of PHEVs were up 129.6 per cent compared with the same period last year.

Mitsubishi’s first-mover advantage is still paying off, with its Outlander and Eclipse Cross remaining Australia’s most popular PHEVs.

Mazda’s CX-60 is sitting in third place, with its PHEV variants accounting for over a third of the nameplate’s total sales.

A new name, the BYD Sealion 6, has stormed into the top 10 after a single month of deliveries, blasting past the MG HS – though its rival Chinese PHEV is set for an imminent replacement.

Rounding out the top 10 PHEVs are the Volvo XC60, Cupra Formentor Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q5 and supply-constrained Lexus NX.
