Last month, 27.333 new passenger cars were registered in the Netherlands, which is 17,5 percent less than in November 2020, according to official figures from BOVAG, RAI Association and data supplier RDC. In the first eleven months of 2021, 8,3 percent fewer cars were registered than a year ago.

The global shortage of computer chips is still a problem for the car industry and it is expected that this problem will continue to cause problems at least until the middle of next year. The order books at car dealers are generally well filled, but many manufacturers are currently unable to produce enough.

For all of 2021 expect BOVAG and RAI Association a total of 327.000 registrations, provided that the now traditional final sprint with registrations of electric cars for the business market can still be started in the last month of the year. As of January 1, the tax addition on the private use of an electric car for business drivers will increase from 12 to 16 percent of the consumer price. That percentage will also apply to the first 35.000 euros instead of now over the first 40.000 euros. For 2022, the sector organizations are counting on 390.000 new passenger cars. Last year the annual total was 356.015, according to the RAI Association.
