Sales volume of Tesla cars in the Netherlands 2012-2022
Tesla Model 3 in the lead
Considering the ranking of fully registered electric cars by model, Tesla’s Model 3 was the clear leader by the end of 2022, with over 42,600 registrations. Comparing it to the runner-up, Kia Niro, there were more than twice the number of registered units of the number one model. The Volkswagen ID.3 had roughly 16,800 registrations and closed the top three.
Tax increase has major impact on Tesla
The Dutch government introduced new tax rules on leased electric cars with a value of more than 50,000 euros in 2019. This has had a major effect on the sales of Tesla and other luxurious electric vehicles and resulted in a decrease in the sales volume of the Tesla Model X and the Model S.
