Volkswagen Passat GTE #1 in November in the Netherlands

The Netherlands have registered 2.206 plug-in passenger cars last month, down 53% Year-on-Year, a misleading number, as last year figures were inflated by the upcoming fiscal changes regarding plug-in hybrids.

Breaking down sales by model, the company car factor is visible in the November ranking, with all top 3 models being fleet-favorites: The VW Passat GTE was #1 with 363 units, the BMW 330e was Second, with 264 registrations and the Mercedes C350e Third, with 236.

In the Year-to-date ranking, the top four models are separated by less than 200 units, for now the Tesla Model S is in leadership, with 1.471 units, only five more than the Second Placed Volvo XC90 (1.466), while the BMW 330e is in #3 with 1.385 units, with the Fourth Placed VW Passat GTE not far behind, with 1.280 registrations.
