In February, some 22,860 new passenger cars were registered in the Netherlands, which is 5.8% more than a year ago. At the same time, plug-in car sales surged.
According to EV Volumes‘ data shared by Jose Pontes, last month about 6,490 new plug-ins were registered, which is some 120% more than a year ago.
Because of that, the plug-in cars market share improved to 28%. All-electric cars hold about 16% share.
- BEVs: 16% share
- PHEVs: 12% share
- Total: 6,490 (28% share)
So far this year, over 13,000 plug-in electric cars were registered in the Netherlands, which is 25% of the market.
- BEVs: 13% share
- PHEVs: 12% share
- Total: 13,618 (25% share)
One of the most interesting things is that the plug-in hybrid Lynk & Co 01 PHEV is still the top selltop-sellingn the country (369 new registrations in February).
However, all-electric cars strengthened their position and we can see the Kia Niro EV (301), Fiat 500 electric (283) and Audi Q4 e-tron (272) not far behind, with the plug-in hybrid Volvo XC40 PHEV (270) completing the top 5.
We can also note that besides the MEB-based Audi Q4 e-tron, there is Skoda Enyaq iV (255) and Volkswagen ID.4 (271) in the top seven.
On the other hand, there are still not many Teslas, and even Kia EV6/Hyundai Ioniq 5 duo is outside the top 10.
When it comes to January-February, Geely-Volvo’s plug-in hybrids are still one of the most popular rechargeable cars.
