Germany Plug-In Vehicle Sales Report May 2014
Germany’s plug-in vehicle market in May can be defined by one word – growth.
934 pure electric cars and 535 plug-in hybrids were registered last month, which is a new high for total plug-ins and for PHEVs alone. All-electric cars grew by 138.3% to the second best result ever. Rate of PHEV growth can’t be calculated due to changes in methodology.
In total, 0.5% of all passenger cars registrations were EVs or PHEVs in Germany.
After five months, 3,378 electric cars and 1,258 plug-in hybrids were registered.
While we wait on detailed numbers from KBA, we’ll extract the sales results for a few models:
- BMW i3 – 255 (including REx)
- Renault ZOE – 106
- Tesla Model S – 57
- Nissan LEAF – 28
- BMW i8 – 25
- Mitsubishi i-MiEV – 21
- Opel Ampera – 5
Nothing special in fact and only 497 in total, so where are the other almost 1,000 registrations? Stay tuned for more.
