Germany is on track for over 68,000 sales in 2018 at 1.9% market share

Passenger plug-in electric car sales in Germany were in November about the same as a year ago at 6,266 and 2.3% market share. And there is a reason behind it.

While the all-electric sales hit an all-time record, the plug-in hybrids dragged the market down, unable to recover from September switch from NEDC to WLTP, which eliminated many plug-in hybrids from the offer.

  • BEVs: 4,262 – up 41% at ≈1.56% market share
  • PHEVs: 2,004 – down 39% at ≈0.73% market share
