Are used diesels the pariahs of the used car market? No, they are quite popular!

In the first 11 months of this year, car companies sold 121,712 diesel used cars, according to the latest bovag-Numbers. This means that used diesels account for 9.9 percent of second-hand sales, the lowest percentage ever. The share of diesels on the Dutch used car market has never been below 10 percent. In 2016 it was 16.5 percent, in 2009 even more than 20 percent.

Electric cars and hybrids on the rise

The majority of used cars sold still have a petrol engine (80.2 percent). Electric models and hybrids reach 2.4 and 6.7 percent respectively, but are on the rise. For example, a year ago, only 1 percent of all used cars were fully electric.

Used diesels are sold very quickly

But back to the diesels. So for the first time in history, they drop below the 10 percent market share. And yet we dare to say that they are not so unpopular after all. Because fewer and fewer diesels are sold second-hand, but they are sold very quickly. The turnover rate of used diesels (6.4x) is higher than that of hybrids (5.6x) and petrol cars (5.4x). Only fully electric cars disappear from the dealer area faster (7.3x).
