A Rapidly Growing Market Driven by Europe's Largest Charging Network and Strong Incentives
The global automotive industry is evolving in terms of technology while tackling environmental issues. It has introduced electric vehicles (EVs) as a clean energy alternative to conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. EVs have low or zero carbon emissions and have become an integral part of automotive OEMs' business strategies. Automakers are creating separate EV business units to prepare for the EV boom expected in the future. But the surge in EV demand will create an urgent need for charging infrastructure, safety regulations, and standards.
Netherlands has a turbulent but rapidly growing EV market. The country recorded notable, all-round growth in EV sales and infrastructure in 2019. As part of the European Union, Netherlands must comply with the National Policy Framework (NPF) and its targets, based on the European Commission's October 2014 directive on alternate fuel vehicles. The NPF seeks to address environmental issues, energy security, and independence, attracting investors to Europe for alternate fuel source development.
Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) were the dominant xEV until 2016. The Netherlands government then realized that people were purchasing PHEVs to gain the incentive benefits but were barely using the electric motor. They decided to reduce the PHEV incentives and focus on battery electric vehicles (BEVs) instead. This had the intended effect as BEV sales took off and saw record-breaking sales and year-on-year growth. With plans to introduce significant purchase subsidies in 2020-2021, EV sales in the Netherlands are forecast to multiply. Netherlands has the biggest charging infrastructure in Europe and a strong innovation culture due to a thriving EV academia (Formula E program) and start-up scene, dedicated to innovation and developments in charging solutions, batteries, and the e-mobility space.
The study analyzes the Netherlands EV market scenario in detail, with charts based on historical (2010-2019), annual (2019), and forecast sales (2019-2025). There are separate sections for plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), the two broad categories covered in the scope.
