Tesla Model 3 Again Leads Netherlands EV Registrations in December 2020

It’s no surprise that Tesla’s Model 3 has been performing well all the way around the globe. And in spite of losing a small amount of the Dutch market share in October, the Model 3 bounced back throughout November, and is off to an excellent start in December.

According to registration data reported by Tesmanian Sunday, the Netherlands had registered 1,754 Tesla Model 3 units in just 13 days in December, making it the country’s top-selling electric vehicle (EV) year-to-date with a total of 6,079 units sold.

Immediately following Tesla’s top-selling vehicle is the Kia Niro, with just 6,036 units registered. The remainder of the top five registered vehicles are the Volkswagen ID.3 Pro, the Hyundai Kona, and the Volkswagen e-Golf, all falling beneath the 6,000 units registered mark.

In spite of the high level of sales performance in the country throughout the year, Tesla also recently faced a Dutch lawsuit, in which drivers expressed dissatisfaction for its product and services. Critics have been known to lodge complaints against the US-based company for its quality control in the past, though it still doesn’t take away from the fact that the Model 3 is the world’s top-selling EV, an important feat for a world on the cusp of climate crisis.

In any case, it’ll be fascinating to see how Tesla’s numbers for the remainder of 2020 shape up. With only a few weeks left in Q4, the company is looking to push as many Model 3s out into the world as possible.
