The excellent selling streak of EVs continues in Germany. In August, the total number of new passenger plug-in car registrations increased by 38% year-over-year to 8,121.
As was the case for several previous months, all-electric cars are more than doubling in sales, while the plug-in hybrids struggle to keep 2018 results:
- BEVs: 5,001 – up 104% at ≈1.6% market share
- PHEVs: 3,120 – down 9% at ≈1.0% market share

Also, the 2nd model evolution of the BMW 225xe Active Tourer iPerformance plug-in hybrid does great with 574 new registrations.
A new record was set also by the Hyundai Kona Electric - 441 registrations.
Tesla improved its sales by 412%, although 514 registrations (98 Model S, 60 Model X and 356 Model 3) was one of the slowest months of the year - ahead of another expected surge in September (last month of the quarter).
