Netherlands: Plug-Ins Accounted For 45% Of Car Market In June 2023

New passenger car registrations in the Netherlands increased in June by 38 percent year-over-year to 41,366, but even such a high growth rate is no match for plug-in car sales.

According to EV Volumes‘ data, shared by Jose Pontes, 18,792 new plug-in cars were registered last month, which is roughly 86 percent more than a year ago.

It’s pretty exciting to see that 45 percent of all new passenger cars are rechargeable. There is a chance that the plug-in share will soon exceed 50 percent.

We are especially happy to see that most of the plug-in car sales (more than two-thirds) happen to be all-electric cars, which also noted a very significant growth rate of 89 percent year-over-year. BEV share improved to 33 percent.

New plug-in car registrations:

  • BEVs: about *13,780 (up 89% year-over-year) and 33% share
  • PHEVs: about *5,000 and 12% share
  • Total: 18,792 (up 86% year-over-year) and 45% share

* estimated from the market share

Model rank

The Dutch EV market is experiencing a major change in the model ranking as Tesla electric cars returned to the top.

Specifically, the Tesla Model Y was the top plug-in model in terms of the number of registrations last month (1,778), as well as the top-selling model overall.

Interestingly, the Peugeot e-208 was second best with 1,165 units, followed by the Tesla Model 3 with 860 units, both outpacing the Lynk & Co 01 PHEV (684) and Volvo XC40 (589 BEV/PHEVs), which were very strong in 2022 and early 2023.
