Netherlands – The Kingdom Of PHEV – Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Tops November Sales Chart As Plug Ins Capture 11% of Market
Norway exceeded 10% market share for EVs last month and this was significant since it concerned mostly battery-electric cars.
Netherlands now exceeds 10% with – mostly with plug-in hybrids.
The Mitsubishi Outlander (all versions, including PHEVs) registration number for November stands at 2,766, which lands it in first place with 6.8% of market share – over 1,200 units more than the second place Renault Mégane. But how many Outlander PHEVs were sold isn’t entirely clear. According to Dutch media, the PHEV version grabbed 2,600 of the 2,766 Outlander sales!
Then we have the Volvo V60 in sixth place with 1,253 registrations and 3.1% market share. And again sources are saying approximately 1,100 were the Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid variant.
Tesla Model S took third for plug ins (#27 overall) with 408 units and another 1% of the market share. The YTD number stands at 618. This means that, in November, Tesla sold almost 1,000 Model S sedans in Norway and the Netherlands combined.
Opel Ampera was fourth for plug-ins with 319 registrations, 0.8% marker share and 1,504 YTD tally.
Then we have long, long list of nothing electric until we get below 100 units and find Renault ZOE with 62 units, Nissan LEAF with 53 units and even BMW i3 with 26 units. Ok. There is the Chevrolet Volt with 4 and maybe something else hidden even lower down the list, but rather insignificant, so we won’t mention it here.
Altogether, over 4,500 plug-ins were sold in the Netherlands in November, capturing ~ 11% of the market (40,659 cars).
Which nation will be next to join the 10% club?
