Germany missed the previous record from March by less than 50
The year 2019 began in Germany with 6,767 new passenger plug-in electric car registrations, which is 20% more than a year ago. The market share increased to over 2.5% (new record).
All the growth comes from all-electric cars, as plug-in hybrids decreased for the fifth consecutive month:
- BEVs: 4,648 (new record) – up 68% at ≈1.75% market share
- PHEVs: 2,119 – down 26% at ≈0.8% market share
