Tesla Model Y became the best-selling car in the Netherlands in September 2023. The car occupies 6% of the car market share.
In September, car sales in the Netherlands recorded a 16.6 percent year-on-year increase. There were 29,855 new passenger cars registered last month, up from 25,611 units last year, according to industry bodies BOVAG, the RAI association and Aumacon, based on data from data specialist RDC.
As in several previous months of this year, Tesla Model Y was the best-selling car in September. Last month, 1,792 units were registered. This means that Model Y took a 6% share of the automobile market, which is quite impressive. Volkswagen’s Polo managed to take second position with a significantly low total number of vehicles registered; in September, 872 units were registered, representing a 2.9% market share. Kia Niro is in third place with 794 units and 2.7% market share. In fourth place is Kia Picanto with 784 sales and a market share of 2.6%. Rounding out the top 5 is Peugeot 208 with 736 registrations and 2.5% market share.
Kia was the leading manufacturer in terms of sales, which is not surprising given the number of car models sold. In September, 2,671 cars were sold. Volkswagen remained in second place in terms of sales with 2,562 registrations. Toyota was in third place with 2,537 sales. Tesla took fourth place with 1,872 sales and a 6.3% market share. Notably, the company did not deliver a Model 3 to the Netherlands last month and only recorded a few units delivered previously. BMW is in fifth place with 1,769 registrations.
