Perhaps not; I don't think that variant exists in the Netherlands either.
But my MasterCard (issued through my bank) debits my account once a month, and has no real 'credit' of its own. Unless I would specifically ask for it to have it, which I haven't, as I need nor want it.
So it's not a straight debit card, but it's pretty close to one.
