The Dutch plugin vehicle (PEV) market continues in the fast lane, with 6.703 plugin registrations logged last month. That meant that last month’s PEV share of the overall passenger auto market was 25 percent (16 percent BEV), pulling the year-to-date PEV share to 21 percent (11 percent BEV) and the total tally to 38.787 units.

The market share is still down compared to last year’s result (25 percent ), but that won’t be for long, as the market share should be growing throughout the year, and maybe surpassing last year’s result by November.

Breaking down registrations between each plugin powertrain, BEVs are returning to form, getting 63 percent of July’s registrations. That allowed pure electrics to gain a bit more ground on plugin hybrids in the year-to-date tally (52 percent vs. 48 percent). Expect pure electrics to continue recovering ground throughout the year.

In July, the plugin sales leader was the Kia Niro EV, with 762 registrations, placing it in #2 in the overall market. However, the highlight this month was the runner-up Ford Mustang Mach-E. Thanks to 644 registrations, its third record score in a row, it was not only the silver medalist in July’s plugin market, but also 5th in the overall market. This is an amazing performance, especially considering that the 2nd best selling Ford model in the Netherlands last month was the Ford Puma, a small crossover that was in a measly 24th position in the overall market.

The Skoda Enyaq completed the plugin podium, with 470 registrations, which allowed it to be #10 in the overall market. That made it 3 BEV models in the overall Dutch top 10.
