Battery-electric car sales still increase, despite the overall market being down.

netherlands: skoda enyaq iv tops plug-in car sales chart in july 2022

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
