Jaguar I-PACE Shines In Netherlands With Over 600 Sales

DEC 5 2018 BY MARK KANE 15

Jaguar I-PACE breaks into the top 15 in November

After 209 registrations in October, Jaguar notes 607 I-PACE registrations in November, which makes it one of the most popular models of all types in the Netherlands.

The I-PACE stands now for 91% of the British’s brand sales in the Netherlands, which is amazing, however, we need to remember that those are sales to those who waited in a long queue. Dealers would like to receive some 3,500 I-PACE by the end of this year, but they received just 875 so far (44% of total Jaguar volume). We don’t know if this is even technically possible as deliveries began late.

For comparison, Nissan sold a lot LEAFs – 657 new registrations (3,107 YTD), which is almost 47% of the total volume for the brand (21% YTD).

The one that delivered the most electric cars seems to be Tesla736 registrations (428 Model S and 308 Model X). Tesla delivered some 6,367 cars this year in the Netherlands and it should further accelerate in December – firstly because the typical end of the quarter rush and secondly because from 2019 on BEVs will get less tax incentives than now.

At current pace there should be about a 1000 deliveries in December. The first 3 selling days of December 105 new I Pace were registered in NL. (1/12: 31 + 3/12: 31 + 4/12: 43). But they will probably speed up deliveries during the month as costumers feel the need to register before January first. Most in one day was November 30th with 63 registrations.

Can somebody share how much subsidies are there in Netherlands for each EV and how much it will be from Jan 2019?

Hope the Jaguar’s success pushes them to make more EV models and also for Land Rover EVs.

This isn’t about a fixed amount of money but about taxing the monetary advantage an employee receives by being allowed to use a company car privately.

No, but I can show you the Bloated subsidy US Oil Industry gets: List of US Fossil Fuel subsidies from recent G20 report: – Expensing of Intangible Drilling Costs – Percentage Depletion for Oil and Natural-Gas Wells – Domestic Manufacturing Deduction for Fossil Fuels – Two Year Amortization Period for Geological & Geophysical Expenditures – Percentage Depletion for Hard Mineral Fossil Fuels – Expensing of Exploration and Development Costs for Hard Mineral Fuels – Capital Gains Treatment for Royalties of Coal – Deduction for Tertiary Injectents – Exception to Passive-Loss Limitation for Working Interests in Oil and Natural-Gas Properties – Enhanced Oil Recovery Credit (EOR) Credit – Marginal Wells Credit – Corporate Tax Income Exemption for Fossil-Fuel Publicly Traded Partnerships – Excise Tax Exemption for Crude Oil Derived from Tar Sands – Royalty-Exempt Beneficial Use of Fuels – Royalty-Free Flaring and Venting of Natural Gas – Liability Cap on Natural Resource Damage – Subsidies for fossil fuels used in the residential sector – Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) – 50 year amortization schedule for coal plants. – The frill method used to make fracking possible was developed wit US tax dollars – All frack fluid is a trade secret(… Read more »

Looks like the Netherlands is probably the only country in the EU that isn’t a Petrol State, controlled by the Petro Industry.

I am sorry to say that our government is firmly in the claws of big corporations, most notably Shell.

New cars in the Netherlands are subject to VAT (obviously) and a special tax called BPM, which is based on NEDC CO2-emissions. The average new car sold in the Netherlands has a CO2-emission of 108 gr/100km. For a petrol car that would amount to a BPM tax amount of €2.264 and for a diesel to €6.372. EV’s are exempted from this tax. More important is the BIK rate, because most EV’s are leased as company car. Company car users (petrol and diesel) must add 22% of the vehicle price when new to their income. For EV’s the percentage is 4% in 2018. However this is going to change in 2019. The 4% ratio is capped at €50.000, vehicles more expensive than that will be taxed at 22% for the amount above €50.000. Example. The base Jag I-pace is about €80.000 in the Netherlands. When leased in 2018 users have to add €3.200 (0,04 * 80.000) to their income tax statement each year for the entire period they are using the car. With an average tax rate of about 40%, they will pay approximately €1.280 in BIK each year. When leased in 2019 users have to add €8.600 (0,04 * 50.000… Read more »

Just for your worldview and entertainment the top 20 best selling cars in the Netherlands in November:

1 Volkswagen Polo
2 Volkswagen Golf
3 Kia Picanto
4 Volkswagen Up
5 Peugeot 108
6 Ford Fiesta
7 Ford Focus
8 Opel Karl
9 Toyota Aygo
10 Nissan Leaf
11 Skoda Octavia
12 Toyota Yaris
13 Opel Corsa
14 Jaguar I-Pace
15 Renault Clio
16 Kia Niro
17 Peugeot 208
18 Tesla Model S
19 Citroën C1
20 Opel Astra

What must be really funny from an American perspective: 5 out of the top 10 are so called A – segment cars. Tiny, cheap and 42 miles to the gallon in real life.

And the LEAF entered the top 10!

Nice share. Thanks!

I would have expected the Smart for two ICE version to be in the top 20 as well. The City Go is also missing.
Anyways, this shows that all the small EVs Americans complain about are actually much more important for replacing the existing fleet.

The Smart is generally considered too expensive, it’s not a huge seller in Europe and never was.

It’s a huge seller in Germany. In my village about every fifth household seems to own one.

Not really a huge seller. Annual sales the last 3 years (all models together) were ~37K each. That’s ~1% marketshare, the #23 brand. Porsche sells about the same number of cars per year…

You barely see them in the UK. In London there are a few more, but still extremely rare.

You really have to want/need one to buy one. You can get any number of much cheaper, almost as small, cars from other companies, or if you want the cachet of a smart, then you’ll probably be looking at an A Class.

I thought the BMW i3 sold well there too.
