Almost half of all newly registered passenger cars in October had some form of electric drive.

The share of electrified cars in the Netherlands was 46.1 percent, according to an analysis by BOVAG.

In October, 22.6 percent of new cars registered were fully electric.

Another 23.5 percent was a (plug-in) hybrid.

Passenger cars with a petrol engine had a share of 50.7 percent, those with a diesel 2.4 percent.

Compared to a year earlier, 12 percent more fully electric cars were registered up to and including October.

This means that such vehicles have a market share of 13 percent.

The number of (plug-in) hybrid cars increased by 73 percent compared to the first ten months last year. The market share rose from 8 to 18 percent.
