According to figures compiled by Clean Technica, the most popular EV in the Netherlands in July was the South Korean Kia Niro EV. Figures show that 644 Niros were sold last month.

Following the Niro, as second most popular EV last month, is the MG ZS SUV, which reportedly sold 501 units. In third place, was the VW e-Golf which sold 488 units. The Volvo XC40 PHEV and Hyundai Kona EV took 4th and 5th spot, having sold 402 and 363 units respectively.
