If we look at the official plug-in electric car registrations data from Germany - everything looks fairly  splendid.

In November and October, nearly 1% (0.97% and 0.98 respectively) of the automotive market belonged to plug-ins.

In total, the 2,655 plug-in electric car registrations for November is the second best result ever. 465 of which, comes from Renault ZOE, while another 462 comes from the Kia Soul EV (with possibly some even staying in the country) alone.

The growth year-over-year is relatively strong, although we know that there is something screwy with going on with those phantom Kia Soul EV sales (and perhaps some other models too), therefore we expect the real domestic sales results to be below 0.8% market share.

All sorts of plug-in hybrids are catching up with all-electric cars in 2015 in the country, but as you can see below, they haven't overtook BEVs yet. All-electric vehicles stand at 1,372 in November and 10,443 YTD, while plug-in hybrids are at 1,283 and 9,845 respectively.
