Some 60,000 electric and hybrid cars were bought in the Netherlands last year, taking the total number on the Dutch roads to around 211,000, the national statistics office CBS said on Tuesday.

This may be an increase of over 33% on a year ago, but electric or hybrid cars still account for just one in 40 of the cars on the Dutch roads, the CBS said.

Just one in 20 of the total is a fully electric vehicle, and the Tesla Model S is the most popular of these. In terms of the hybrids, the Mitsubishi Outlander, the Volkswagen Golf plug-in hybrid and the Toyota Auris lead the pack in popularity.
