With more than 2,000 sales, Tesla Model S was the top-selling plug-in model in the Netherlands in 2017, and so far this year it still maintains the lead.

In May, 254 Model S were sold in the country, which enabled it to overtake the Volkswagen e-Golf, which is expected to fall even further down as the Nissan LEAF raises.

May results:

  • Tesla Model S - 254 (1,113 YTD)
  • Volkswagen e-Golf - 119 (1,036 YTD)
  • Nissan LEAF - 264 (991 YTD)
  • Hyundai IONIQ Electric - 73 (696 YTD)
  • Tesla Model X - 173 (570 YTD)

Tesla has a chance to improve the full-year result from 2017 both for the Model S (2,077) and Model X (1,239).

Overall, sales of plug-in electric cars in the Netherlands in May stood at 1,311 (up 123%), and 6,765 YTD (up 128%) at an average 3.3% market share. 88% of plug-in sales for the month were of the all-electric car variety.
