EV Statistics Netherlands

Took me a while to get used to the intense workflow at my current job Eneco and make time for the blog, sorry about that. I am having the time of my life though, perhaps I can convert that to blog topics as well. Without further ado, the Electric Car population in the Netherlands is still growing, so here goes:

So close to 50.000, a great milestone is about to be achieved!

a spectacular hump in the graph, we indeed have come a long way.

Quick Chargers have made strides earlier, with companies like FastNed putting up Fast Charging Stations along the highway this will keep up for some time still.

Tesla is the King of EV's, also in numbers in the Netherlands. Good Old Nissan Leaf is a strong second, though I am curious to find out what happened between december last year and start of 2015.

King of the EREV/PHEV category is still without any doubt the Outlander. The recent addition of the VW Golf is also showing great strides forward, I expect that to gain a few places in the course of this year.

Investment Opportunities: Fast Ned

Confession time: I have put money where my mouth is. I have invested in a company that also believes in electric mobility as the way to go. I have invested in Fast Ned recently.

On Fast Ned

I strongly believe the people at Fast Ned are on to something with their fast charging infrastructure. Their philosophy is just right and their attention to the users is excellent in many ways. Also their design of their car ports which will be available at key locations among our Dutch high ways are pleasing to the eye.

Investing

Investing in Fast Ned helps them put up more chargers more quickly and provide full coverage of out Dutch high ways. As they say, currently around 7% of new cars sold in the Netherlands is electric and Fast Ned holds concessions for 15 years on a large number of key locations. If you want in on the action, check their website with more details.

The latest data on the electric vehicles in the Netherlands are in, last August there were 40880 electric vehicles in the Netherlands. Data is based on vehicle registrations and collected by RVO.

Stats

Sales and registrations are always a bit slower during summer, but this summer we did manage to break the 40k limit. With a growth of 2-3% per month over the summer, things aren't really bad.

PHEV Top 5

No big changes in the top 5, thouh the Outlander is still getting away from the rest of the field. Prius and Ampera sales seem to have stalled almost.

EV Top 5

Same goes for the EV Top 5, nothing much really happened during our summer months. Tesla Model S is still king of the hill, the numbers 4-6 could trade places any time soon.

No big excitement, but looking forward to the last few months of the year. I doubt we'll break 50k by december, but 45k seems within reach.

33527 Electric Vehicles in the Netherlands

It took a while before I processed the latest data from RVO; but here it is. By the end of March, there were 33527 electric vehicles in the Netherlands.

It appears the market is slowly recovering again after the 'full stop' we experienced at the start of this year. It is good to see the ramp going up again.

The Top 5 Data for this month has been split, there is now a Top 5 available for the EREV/PHEV category and a separate Top 5 for the FEV category.

Charging Infrastructure

The changes on how to record and organize this type of data is not over yet. For this month there has been 'just' a transfer from one category to another. We are still catching up on the closing of 35 Quick Chargers. Why there are still 100's of chargers missing in the total, I've not been able to find out yet. I'm open for suggestions though ;-)
