EV Numbers the Netherlands: 9256
The latest and greatest statistics came out today from AgentschapNL, the electric vehicle data for last month. By the end of April, there were 9256 EVs in the Netherlands, still on par to reach our goal of 20.000 in 2015. Without further ado:
There is growth in most categories, though in some cases a small decline can be seen. It would be interesting to know if this is because some EVs have broken down, or have been exported abroad for example. In case you read this and have an idea, feel free to contact me on this and I'd be happy to share your input here.
Over the past reports from AgentschapNL, I pieced together the data the published on the Top5 breakdown per car model, some interesting patterns emerge here as well. Clearly as expected, the Ampera is the clear winner here, but also the Volt is doing strong. The Kangoo is keeping up nicely as well and highest in the commercial van category.
And I did a similar thing for the data that got collected on the chargers in the Netherlands, though unfortunately there has been a change in data source around last october. The difference visible is most likely due to private owned chargers counted as semi-public chargers, but this data can not be corrected for this.
