Plug-Ins Represent 30% Of New Cars Sold In 2021

December 2021 was the second-best month ever for passenger plug-in electric car sales in the Netherlands with 23,150 new registrations.

The result was lower by about 25% than the all-time record, set a year ago when registrations were artificially inflated by the manufacturers’ rush to comply with CO2 emission requirements in the European Union.

Nonetheless, the plug-in car market share expanded to 65% (including 59% BEVs). Not only that, the top 10 cars for the month were all-electric.

In 2021, about 95,464 new passenger plug-in cars were registered in the Netherlands, which is over 7% more than in 2020.

The market share improved to 30% (including 20% BEVs and 10% PHEVs), a full five percentage points above 2020 (25%).

The Skoda Enyaq iV was the best-selling electric car both for the month and for the year, with respectively 1,517 and 6,685 units.

The second-best this year was the Kia Niro EV with 5,850, while the third was the Volkswagen ID.4 (4,216), slightly ahead of the Ford Mustang Mach-E (4,148).

There are no Teslas in the forefront, as the Tesla Model 3 was #9 for the year (2,561), which is quite interesting, considering how popular the Teslas were in the Netherlands previously.
