Netherlands February 2013

Opel Ampera's rear didn't get the same nip n'tuck love that it's front had

Plug-In sales in the Netherlands is going down alarmingly, in February sales were down almost 50% regarding the month before and some 70% if we look back to last November.

In this gloomy outlook, the only model that isn't underperforming regarding last year's sales is the Chevrolet Volt, up one position to #2 and gaining on last years monthly average (25 units).

As for the rest of the competition, their performance varies from bad (Opel Ampera, Renault Twizy...) to very bad (Fisker Karma, Fluence ZE).

Already with a massive 79% Plug-In Hybrid share in 2012, this year the EV dutch market continues to prefer this kind of electric car, increasing even their market share by 3% to an incredible 82% share.
