Electric vehicle industry in the Netherlands - Statistics and Facts
Alternatively fuelled vehicles are an important part of reducing the global carbon footprint. Electric driving is an innovation, offering economic potential and opportunities for the business community. Dutch companies have put most of their focus on the e-mobility components of the charging infrastructure and services, manufacturing, production of light electric vehicles and electric scooters.
As mentioned previously, Dutch e-mobility companies particularly focus on electric scooters. Looking at the number of registered electric motor vehicles in the Netherlands, the moped (25km/h) was the most registered motor vehicle as of March 2017, with approximately 33,000 registrations. It was a significant difference compared to other vehicles. The 45 km/h moped, for example, got nearly 4,000 registrations.
There is a long way to go before the share of electric vehicles is higher than the petrol fuelled. However, the share of consumers thinking about purchasing an electric vehicle within 2015 and 2016 grew. In light of reducing the carbon footprint and the Paris Agreement this is a positive development, but the challenge remains to convince the majority of the potential and importance of electromobility.
