Passenger car sales in the Netherlands increased a bit in September (by 5% year-over-year), which is the second positive month in a row.
Meanwhile, plug-in electric car sales continue to slightly outpace the market, maintaining a significant market share of about one-third of the total volume.
According to EV Volumes' data, shared by Jose Pontes, last month 8,984 new plug-ins were registered, which is roughly 13% more than a year ago and 35% of all new registrations.
Both all-electric and plug-in hybrid cars noted slight growth, which in the current challenging times, is probably the best we can count for.
New plug-in car registrations:
- BEVs: 5,985 (up 15%) and 23% share
- PHEVs: 2,999 (up 10%) and 12% share
- Total: 8,984 (up 13%) and 35% share
