Netherlands: Plug-In Cars Share Expands To 32% In September 2021
In September, the passenger car market in the Netherlands was down once again – by 16% year-over-year (after a 22% decrease a year ago).
In such circumstances, even small growth of plug-in electric car sales translates into a noticeable gain of market share.
Last month, the number of new passenger plug-in car registrations increased just 1% year-over-year to 7,904, but it’s enough to secure 32% share of the total market (including 21% for all-electric cars). All-electric cars continue to be the more popular choice than plug-in hybrids.
Ahead of us are the last three months of the year, which usually were also the highest in terms of volume.
