The Netherlands is an important market for Tesla Motors. The country is Tesla’s second biggest market in Europe behind Norway. The company has an important presence in the country especially through its plant in Tilburg (see picture above) where some light assembly operations are completed for the Model S’s going to Europe.
Model S sales in the Netherlands have been progressing nicely. In 2014 it was the best-selling 100% electric vehicle in the country and it remains at the top spot so far this year with an impressive ~73% growth. From January to August 2014, Tesla delivered 664 cars in the country, but during the same period in 2015, it delivered 1,148 Model S’s according to registration data, which represents a ~73% year over year increase to date.
The statistics are based on cars registered during the period.
The data also shows Model S sales stabilizing and slowly moving toward less disproportionate peaks at the end of every quarter. This is something Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the company was aiming to do as production capacity is increasing.
