Netherlands: Skoda Enyaq iV Tops Plug-In Car Sales Chart In July 2022

Electric Cars

Passenger car sales in the Netherlands continue to decrease. In July, the number of new registrations decreased by 18% year-over-year.

It seems that only all-electric cars are still able to maintain some positive results, as plug-in hybrids are also in the red.

According to EV Volumes’ data, shared by Jose Pontes, last month 6,766 new plug-ins were registered, which is roughly 1% more than a year ago. The tiny increase is a result of two trends – expanding BEVs (up by 13% year-over-year) and shrinking PHEVs (down 19%).

Overall, plug-in cars accounted for some 31% of the market (including 22% for BEVs).

New plug-in car registrations:

  • BEVs: 4,759 and 22% share
  • PHEVs: 2,007 and 9% share
  • Total: 6,766 and 31% share

So far this year, over 55,000 plug-in electric cars were registered in the Netherlands, which is 31% of the market.

New plug-in car registrations year-to-date:

  • BEVs: about *35,500 and 20% share
  • PHEVs: about *19,500 and 11% share
  • Total: 55,023 and 31% share

In terms of models, the top electric model (and #7 overall) in July was the Skoda Enyaq iV with 539 registrations, which enabled the MEB-based model to strengthen its top year-to-date rank with a total result of 3,249 units and relatively substantial lead.

The next two electric cars last month were the Kia EV6 (366) and Citroën e-C4 (312). Interestingly, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 also noted a relatively strong result (262).
