The Tesla Model 3 is the #1 vehicle in the Netherlands for the 4th time.
The Dutch new car market gains another 13.6% year-on-year in November to 39.514 registrations, but the year-to-date tally remains in frank negative at -4.7% to 404.149. Volkswagen (-12%) manages to retain the brands top spot but as the end of year approaches Tesla deliveries (+459.2%) gain momentum, lifting the brands up 19 spots on October to #2 overall with 10.4% of the market vs. #9 and 4.6% YTD. Renault (+56.1%) rounds up the podium like last month, distancing Kia (+35.4%) and Toyota (+38.9%) all vastly outpacing the market. Hyundai (+84.7%), BMW (+40.9%) and Mercedes (+32.4%) also do so in the remainder of the Top 10, while Porsche (+109.8%), DS (+108.6%), Mazda (+95.9%), Dacia (+78.7%) and Audi (+41%) stand out further down. Notice also MG up to #30 with 48 sales as the eZS gears up.
Model-wise, the Tesla Model 3 is the overall best-seller for the 4th time here after last March, June and September, reaching a gargantuan 10.1% share with just under 4.000 deliveries – once again these are orders dating back sometimes years being bulk-delivered, it’s not customers turning up in a Tesla dealership to purchase a Model 3 on the spot. It is the first time it ranks #1 not during an end-of-quarter month, with the brand having us used to filling up on deliveries then to coincide with stock market announcements. This way the Model 3 cements even further its YTD domination at 4.4% share vs. just 3.1% for the #2, the VW Polo (-26.3%), also down to #2 for the month. The Top 10 is littered with spectacular gains, led by the VW Tiguan (+330.4%), Hyundai Kona (+153.9%), Kia Niro (+124.8%), Renault Clio (+86.4%), Hyundai i10 (+77.9%) and Toyota Aygo (+53.8%).
