The Netherlands have registered 5.523 plug-in passenger cars this year, down 61% Year-on-Year.
A dive directly attributed to the fiscal changes regarding plug-in hybrids, as 100% electric vehicles actually are seeing registrations go up by 10% regarding the same period last year, representing now 37% of the plug-in electric vehicle market, when last year they had only 7%.
The best-selling model in July was the Mercedes C350e with 128 deliveries (year best), followed by the Volvo XC90 T8 (123 units) and BMW 330e (109 units).
The Volvo XC90 T8 recovered the Year-to-date leadership in July, by registering 123 units that month, thus leading the YTD ranking with 941 units, 12 more than the previous leader and now runner-up, the Tesla Model S.
Meanwhile, the Finnish plug-in electric vehicle market continues on a steady growth trend, having registered 106 units in July, up 65% regarding the same month last year.
For the first time this year, the best-selling model in July wasn’t an SUV, but the Volkswagen Passat GTE leading with 17 units, followed closely by the BMW 330e and the Volvo XC90 T8, both with 16 deliveries last month.
In the Year-to-date ranking, the Volvo XC90 is far ahead of the rest of the competition, with an advance of 114 units over the new second placed, the Passat GTE (187 vs 73 units).[source: EAFO]
