So new car registrations in the UK in March collapsed by 44%, as predicted:


However it looks like BEV registrations are up almost 200% compared with the same month last year and 204% up for the year to date.

Is this just because BEV buyers are a different demographic and therefore more likely to go through with their purchase?

some of that is due to the end of quarter delivery bump from tesla where most UK cars are delivered in the last 6 weeks of the quarter so end feb and march. 4700 model 3's sold in march in the UK (see best seller - other) 9th most popular of all cars. Looks like a couple of hundred S and X's were sold as well based on by brand figures

Possibly. But a lot have been waiting some time for delivery whereas ICE are mostly off the shelf. So the BEV ones are a bit more invested.
