BEV market in the Netherlands, led by Tesla Model 3, doubled in July. 

The Netherlands experiences rapid growth of all-electric car sales, which increased in July by 102%, taking 6.2% of the new passenger car market.

In total, new plug-in registrations (BEV and PHEV) amounted to 2,372 (up 73% year-over-year), which translated into 7% market share. It could be better, but PHEVs are still struggling a lot (decreased 21%).

After seven months of 2019, total volume exceeds 22,400 at an average 8.6% market share.

The very important aspect of the growth is that sales keep doubling despite there being no Tesla Model 3 delivery spike (like close to 2,500 in June).

Of course, the Model 3 still does great with 590 new registrations (best first month of a quarter) and 6,653 YTD (third highest result among all models available in the country).

Decent results were posted also by the Hyundai Kona electric – 324, Volkswagen e-Golf – 231 and Kia Niro EV (e-Niro) – 221.

On the other hand, the Nissan LEAF (151), even with the 62 kWh version, seems to be disappointing at #6 for the month and #5 for the year.
