March 2015 was the best-ever month for plug-in electric car sales in Germany - by a lot.

2,164 registrations is 121% more than in March 2014 and total market share hit a record high of 0.7% too.

Most of the sales came from battery-electric cars - 1,278, but plug-in hybrids are growing much faster year-over-year, and reached 886.

The best selling model last month was the Nissan LEAF, which had a record high 409 registrations! But total BEVs sold by Nissan stood at 461, which indicates 52 e-NV200 were sold.

The second best model was Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV at 243, and finally the Tesla Model S, with 211 registrations managed to take 3rd place.
