After the significant sales record in October and the milestone of over 4% market share, the German plug-in electric car market remains strong also in November.

The number of new passenger plug-in car registrations increased by 75% year-over-year to 10,985, which is close to 3.7% of all passenger cars.

It's currently out of the range of any other European market in terms of volume and the market share is also quite high (although way below the few leading markets).
