It was the best March ever by a huge margin

The Netherlands is experiencing another spike of plug-in electric car sales caused mostly by volume deliveries of Tesla Model 3 and decent performance from a few other models, despite the fact that high-end and expensive BEV models are in retreat after a decrease of the tax incentive in 2019.

From January 1, 2019, the BiK tax increased from 4% to 22% for BEVs that costs more than €50,000 (the 22% applies only to amount above amount of €50,000).

The number of new plug-in electric car registrations amounted to 4,721 at a high 12% market share (10% share falls on BEVs)

After three months of 2019, the average market share amounted to 9% (7.4% BEVs) while sales exceeded 10,400.
