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.
