Around 300,000 plug-in sales per year doesn't seem like a lot of growth...especially considering the myriad of new players, like the Outlander PHEV (above), who are still yet to go on sale in the US.

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV rush in the Netherlands in late 2013

The Netherlands is reaching its own milestone of 50,000 plug-in cars on the roads.

From January 2013 through June 2015 sales exceeded 48,500 (gathered or estimated by EV Sales Blog). We don’t have sales results for years 2010-2012, although the mark of 50,000 probably is already behind us.

The spike in late 2013 was related to first deliveries of the long-awaited Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

The Japanese SUV is up to date still the most popular model with over 18,000 units sold.

This year something is going to change, as after the first six months the market leader is Volkswagen Golf GTE.

Tesla Model S is the best selling all-electric car in the Netherlands (around 3,500 sold in 2.5-years).

This year average plug-in sales stand almost perfectly at 2,000 a month. The majority are plug-in hybrids.

With over 8 million cars in the Netherlands, 50K will be about 0.625%

Will take time to get all those gassers off the roads.

Better take the percentage of sales

And one of the biggest reason why we need to work really hard on biofuels too, replacing the petrol and diesel that the cars on the roads will use for decades to come.

And even if the Netherlands had 100% PHEVs on the road it would still leave us with up to 50% of the current levels of petrol/diesel needed still.

Accumulated sales are at 57k, distributed as follows:

15 – 12k
14 – 15k
13 – 23k
12 – 6k
11 – 1k
