|This car has struck a chord with dutch buyers|
Back to Business Edition
After the Hangover (January) and Recovery (February) from last year sales phenomenon, the Dutch EV market is back in full swing with some 1.900 units sold and the 2013 Best Seller Outlander PHEV back in charge with close to 1.000 sales, followed by the V60 Plug-In (459 units), but it's after these two that the March ranking gets interesting: Four BEV's follow!
That's right, with Tesla Model S in #3 (190 units), Nissan Leaf in #4 (138 units, new personal best), #5 for BMW i3 (89) and #6 for VW e-Up! (64), the ratio PHEV vs BEV moved from 85% in December '13 to 73% last month, side effects from the fiscal changes?
After starting the year under the 1% threshold, the EV share (3,31%) is now back to more healthy values, although still far from the 5,55% recorded last year.
