The Netherlands has always been an important market for Tesla, and before Model 3 in Europe, it was on par with Norway as Tesla's best European market.
But Norway is no longer the largest Tesla market in Europe, as the Netherlands begins to lead thanks to Model 3 sales growth. Starting in June 2019, the Netherlands surpasses Norway in the number of registered Teslas.
In late August, Tesla Model 3 took the 3rd place in terms of sales of Dutch cars in 2019. This was an unforgettable achievement for the model, which began delivering only in mid-February.
In September, the number of Teslas sold since the beginning of the year exceeded 14,000 units. Not many car manufacturers sell as many units of their products in 1 year in one country. And that also meant that the Tesla Model 3became the No.1 car overall in the Dutch market. This is the first all-electric car (BEV) in the Netherlands.
As of November, according to registration data, Tesla delivered 18,460 cars in the Netherlands, 17,895 units of them are Tesla Model 3.
According to Kentekenradar, over the 10 days of December, 2,218 Tesla Model 3 was registered in the Netherlands. This means that the total number of Tesla Model 3 registered in the Netherlands has exceeded 20,000 units.
The twenty-thousandth Tesla Model 3 was registered on Monday, when 437 new owners received their Model 3. So far, 2218 copies of Tesla have been registered in the Netherlands this month, but a new batch of vehicles will appear later this month.
According to Kentekenradar, 79% of cars are used for commercial purposes, which means that 21% were purchased by private individuals.
58% of drivers choose the Long Range AWD version, followed by Standard Plus with 33%. Black is the most popular color, 35.4% of drivers choose it.
Until the end of the year, government subsidies for EV will still be in effect in Europe, so Tesla’s shipments to Europe are expected to be even higher in December than in November. Apparently, in the Q4, Tesla will break it previous record of deliveries.
