Within the Netherlands, 47% of latest automobile gross sales had been plugin automobile gross sales in September. Moreover, 34% had been full electrics!

The Netherlands noticed a rise in plugin registrations to 13,916 models in September, with the Dutch plugin automobile (PEV) market thus reaching 47% of the general auto market final month. That pulled the year-to-date (YTD) rating to 43% (29% BEV). That’s largely due to pure electrics (34% of latest automobile gross sales), which represented 72% of all plugin gross sales, pulling the yearly common to 69%. The general market can be rising — though, at a slower fee (+17% YoY). It rose to 29,855 registrations.

Count on the ultimate plugin share for 2023 to finish near 50%, most likely round 47%, which might imply that the Dutch market might have its EV transition completed earlier than the tip of the last decade!

In September, Tesla had the Mannequin Y ending #1 within the total Dutch auto gross sales rating, with double the gross sales of the #2 VW Polo!

Wanting on the total prime 5, solely two fashions (#2 VW Polo & #Four Kia Picanto) don’t have plugin variations. Curiously, they’re both metropolis automobiles (Picanto) or belong to the B-segment/subcompact class (Polo). The remaining fashions within the prime 5 (#1 Tesla Mannequin Y, #Three Kia Niro, #5 Peugeot 208) are both full electrical (Mannequin Y) or closely electrified (73% of Niro gross sales belong to the BEV model, whereas the French hatchback is at 71% of electrification fee).

This reveals as soon as once more that whereas the EV transition within the higher half of the market is effectively superior, the decrease half nonetheless has a protracted method to go. These promised €20,000-ish small EVs are badly wanted….

Beneath the US crossover, the Volvo XC40 went again to regular, with its 673 registrations (597 of which had been BEVs) permitting it to finish the month in 2nd. The Kia Niro, in the meantime, had its finest rating because the new technology landed, 603 registrations (583 of them being BEVs), pulling it to the final place on the rostrum.

Within the first half of the desk, the highlights come from Peugeot and BMW. The #6 Peugeot e-2008 EV scored its finest end result since December 2021, 397 deliveries, whereas the #7 BMW iX1 broke a brand new file by getting 381 registrations in September — confirming each fashions’ reputation.

Total, the Bavarian automaker had a constructive month. Not solely did the iX1 get a file end result, however the German make additionally positioned the i4 in #15, with 213 registrations, and the iX3 in #19, with 184 registrations. That allowed it to put three fashions within the prime 20, the one make capable of obtain that.

On the backside finish of the desk, the spotlight is the Jeep Avenger EV, surging to #12 due to a file 259 registrations, confirming a pattern that had been within the making for some time. Now, the query is: Will the Polish-made Jeep turn out to be a daily within the prime 20?

Exterior the highest 20, the highlights got here from Mercedes. The EQB scored a file 126 registrations, whereas its barely smaller sibling, the EQA, had its finest end result since 2021, with 138 deliveries. A point out additionally goes out to the Hyundai Kona EV — due to the primary models of the brand new technology, it had 128 registrations and may return to the desk quickly.

Wanting on the 2023 rating, the Tesla Mannequin Y has nearly double the registrations of the runner-up mannequin, so its place is greater than safe. The identical can’t be mentioned concerning the remaining positions on the rostrum. The Volvo XC40 surpassed its Chinese language cousin, the Lynk & Co 01, and returned to the #2 spot. Solely 61 models now separate the Lynk & Co mannequin and its Swedish cousin. The current slowdown of the China-made mannequin might imply that the Volvo XC40 is now the most definitely candidate for the silver medal.

Off the rostrum, and seeing the Geely–Volvo fashions slowing down, each the #Four Peugeot e-208 and #Eight Tesla Mannequin Three might aspire to succeed in the rostrum, all relying now on how briskly the 2 manufacturers can ramp up deliveries of the refreshed fashions, set to land within the subsequent few weeks.

One other spotlight within the prime positions is the Kia Niro, which was as much as sixth, confirming its reputation on Dutch roads.

Within the second half of the desk, there have been quite a few place adjustments, beginning with the Peugeot e-2008, which climbed from 14th to 13th. The little crossover switched locations with the BMW i4, which now has its sibling BMW iX1 simply seven models behind. The favored electrical crossover rose one place in September, to #15. Count on the smallest of electrical Beemers to surpass its liftback stablemate in October, thus changing into the perfect promoting premium mannequin on the desk.

Nonetheless on the premium compact crossover theme, the Audi This autumn e-tron additionally climbed one place, on this case to 17th, whereas the MG Four was up one place, to #19, an unusually low place for the value-for-money king. Possibly MG is ravenous the Dutch market to learn others?

Within the producer rating, chief Tesla (11.3%, up from 11.1%) stays robust, however under it, we see BMW (8.4%, up from 8.3%) surpassed Volvo (8.3%) in September and have become the brand new runner-up model. This time Volvo hasn’t misplaced share, however with the Swedish model having misplaced greater than 1% share within the earlier months (it had 9.4% in June), it was straightforward prey for the German make. Is the extremely anticipated EX30 drying up demand for the present fashions?

In the meantime, Peugeot (7.1%, up from 7%) benefitted from good performances from its 208/2008 finest sellers to distance itself from #5 Volkswagen (6.7%, down 0.1%).

As for OEMs, chief Stellantis (16.4%) failed to learn from the great outcomes of each Peugeot and Jeep, as a result of Opel had a gradual month and prevented them from growing share.

#2 Volkswagen Group (15.4%) remained steady, with a robust Skoda compensating for a slower than standard Volkswagen.

Geely–Volvo continued its steep descent, having dropped from 14.8% in August to its present 14.4%, however this time it wasn’t Volvo’s fault — that accountability fell on the shoulders of Polestar and much more so Lynk & Co, which is probably going affected by the shift away from PHEVs and into BEVs.

Lastly, #Four Tesla (11.3%, up from 11.1%) distanced itself somewhat from the Koreans, Hyundai–Kia, which nonetheless had a constructive month (11.1%, up 0.1%).
