Netherlands Reports No Plug-In Electric Car Sales Growth In September 2020

The results were strong last month, but 3% below 2019.

In September, passenger plug-in electric car sales in the Netherlands decreased slightly, by 3% year-over-year, to 7,801 registrations, but that’s still one of the best results ever.

Because of the weak condition of the overall market, the plug-in share actually improved significantly to 27% (compared to 21% in 2019).

Most of the sales (79%) fall on BEVs, which alone hold 21% of the market (more than one in five new cars is battery-electric).
