The German plug-in electric market seems to be stuck at last year's level,  and has not showed much increased strength since a new incentive program was introduced a few months ago.

The 2,649 registrations of new plug-ins for the country translates to an even 0% growth rate, and market share still hovers just under 1.0%.

  • BEVs - 1,231 (down 10%)
  • PHEVs - 1,418 (up 11%)
The best selling model in Germany was Renault ZOE (303) followed by 291 BMW i3 sales (181 of the all-electric version, and 110 REx/range extended).

We should note that a strong result of 225 registrations was achieved by the BMW 225xe Active Tourer.

Interestingly, the Nissan LEAF again surged to 181, continuing its bi-polar monthly sales results, while fifth place found the Volkswagen Golf GTE with 167 units registered (and an additional 115 e-Golfs).

Tesla registrations amounted 132 (84 S and 48 X), which is 2.5x more than all Porsche plug-ins.
