Tesla Model 3 Became The Best-Selling Vehicle In Netherlands In March 2020

Tesla Model 3 is the sixth time becoming the best-selling car in the Netherlands on the overall market.

Despite the slowdown in Dutch car sales, the plug-in market was positive in March, registering 5102 cars. According to ev-sales, this shows plugin registrations up 8% YoY, in stark contrast with the overall market (-25% YoY), translating into a PEV Share of 17% (14% BEV) in March, pulling the year to date count to 12,208 units (+14%), with the 2020 PEV share now at 12% (9% BEV).

Such good indicators in the Dutch market was largely due to the Tesla Model 3. There were 1,339 vehicles registered in the country, which allowed Model 3 to become a bestseller in the whole market, having an advantage of 400 units over the Kia Niro with 925 registered units. This is the sixth time that the Tesla Model 3 wins the overall Best Selling trophy.


In the EV sales ranking, Model 3 is also becoming the undisputed leader. In second place is the Kia Niro EV, lagging behind by 814 cars!, selling only 525 units. The third place goes to Volkswagen e-golf with 403 cars sold.
