    Automotive News

    Tesla Model 3 passes VW Polo as No. 1 seller in Dutch market YTD.

    Tesla's Model 3 has moved past the Volkswagen Polo to become the best-selling model in the Netherlands.

    The company sold 5,768 units of its most affordable sedan during September, an almost four-fold jump from August, according to Dutch motor traders association Bovag.

    Demand for the Model 3 also made Tesla the most popular car brand in the country for the month.

    Tesla's sales have rocketed in Europe since the automaker introduced the Model 3 in key markets such as the Netherlands, Norway and Germany, beginning in February.
    The car, which retails from 43,390 euros ($47,308) in Europe, has left competitors trailing with a range of 240 miles (386 km) on a single charge. LINK


    Quality RWD Tesla electric seem to instantly steal the Dutch car market, whilst Cadillac v8's & v6's are nowhere to be seen not in the top 40 brands or top 250 model charts no signs they have aced the Dutch market just yet after decades, maybe thier global marketing men are delivering the wrong type of cars to markets, Tesla Model 3 was number No3 best seller in the UK in August Tesla managed to fit the steering wheel on correct side of the car, Cadillac do a low quality job fit the steering wheel on the incorrect side of the car in the UK,

    Cadillac could making an absolute fortune in the luxury car market but fail to deliver the correct products Europe is the biggest most profitable luxury car market on the planet sad to say Caddy don't have any strategy a clue on how to break into it, Telsla do. Sad to say they have been let down by the cloth eared deaf overpaid CEOdunderheads running & marketing Cadillac in Europe who are l find arrogant always going to conquer the market in 5 years time never now the new CEO will repeat the message in 5 years time, they don't listen are experts at dishing out the insults rather than listening.

    Tesla a great new American company got it right delivers the goods,

    I guess the Dutch government don't give them on v8's, one day Cadillac's European CEO/crap Marketing guys will wake up the penny will drop.

    Expecting the same ole Four Tops song from the Cadillac European CEO not up to speed spill again soon: "Cadillac will be No1 brand in the Netherlands in 5 years time you just wait and see", repeat again after getting nowhere in 5 years, repeat again in another 5 years after that..

    Netherlands is a low lying country, l guess the Dutch folk/government dont want to be sitting under 20 feet of water in the future they probably worry a bit more about climate change than others, most now live local to work, cycle everywhere have given up on the car there.


    Awesome little rear drive American made Tesla looks at home in the Netherlands, Dutch worry about climate change disappearing under 20ft of water more than most. LINK


    Cycling like Tesla is very popular in the Netherlands trying to find somewhere to park the bike is getting harder.


    Netherlands are looking to ban the sale of ALL gasoline/diesel cars by 2030, l guess thats why the Dutch are buying Tesla more than any other car, will be weird seeing Dutch car parks full of Tesla's no other EV brand comes anywhere close in sales. LINK

    It's amazing how the performance on new roadster compared to the old roaster has improved with time, the new next generation roaster has top speed of 250 MPH with a 0-60 in just 1.9 second not sure where you will do that sort of speed but sounds like a fun drive, the improved 620 mile range is pretty useful though.



    Why can't Tesla do a small UTE like this custom job on a Tesla, what a very clever woman l do like women who get a little bit dirty like this very clever female Engineer that created it, my kind of woman a woman likes to get her hands dirty.

    Doubt its worry about AGW or bigfoot or even the flying spaghetti monster. I don't know specific details but have colleagues in NL. There are massive tax advantages to hybrids & electrics there. Its (forced) economics.

    Not even tax and spend Obama would blow 15 million dollars on a home on Martha's Vineyard if climate change was as big of a deal that AOC and Greta Thunberg make it out to be.
    "The car's brilliant and ... a great surprise, pleasant surprise for all Corvette lovers everywhere ... a huge shock to our competitors ... because I don't think anybody was expecting something that good. What pleases me the most about it was that ... I can say this is the first car that's come out, that was done since I left.

    Forced compliance. Some here do not believe in such devices.

    Finally an American brand has success in Europe and benefit from tax incentives paid by Europeans and not by Americans. Instead of snippy comments people in the U.S. should be proud of it.
