The total number of lease cars in the Dutch fleet increased by no less than 60,000 cars last year. That equates to a growth of more than 5 percent. This is reported by the Association of Dutch Car Leasing Companies (VNA).

In 2020, the Dutch lease sector grew by just 1.5 percent, but in the second year, which was ravaged by corona and the associated measures, the Dutch car lease fleet grew a lot faster. With over 60,000 vehicles, to be exact. An increase of 5.2 percent compared to last year. Of all new cars delivered in the Netherlands in 2021, 39 percent was purchased privately and 61 percent is leased, VNA reports.

The Dutch car lease fleet consists of commercially leased passenger cars and vans, as well as private lease cars. The number of cars driven through a business lease construction increased by 3.7 percent in 2021 to 751,400 cars. Roughly 25 percent of all business lease cars have a plug.

We observe a greater percentage growth in the private lease sector. Last year, the number of private lease cars in the Netherlands increased by 7.8 percent to 231,000 units. To put the growth of the private lease market in perspective: compared to 2016, there were almost four times as many ‘private lease cars’ in the Netherlands at the end of 2021. VNA observes a striking shift from A-segment vehicles to compact family cars that may or may not be fitted with a plug. About 1 in 13 private lease cars has a plug, ie just under 8 percent. That provides an interesting fact. According to VNA, more than half (54 percent) of electric passenger cars in the Netherlands are lease cars.

It will undoubtedly come as no surprise to you that the demand for delivery vans in the lease market has also grown. The leased van fleet grew by no less than 8.1 percent in 2021 to 222,600 vehicles. At the bottom of the line, 22 percent of all vans in the Dutch fleet are now driven via a lease construction.
