Plug-In Car Sales Increased 24% In February 2022

New passenger car registrations in Germany increased in February by 3.2% year-over-year to 200,512, but considering the worrying news from Europe (including halted vehicle plants), the growth in the following months is endangered.

Plug-in electric car registrations increased last month by 24% year-over-year to 49,889 or almost 25% of the market.

The growth comes solely thanks to the battery-electric vehicle sales. The number of BEV registrations increased 55% year-over-year to 28,306, which is over 14% of the market. Plug-in hybrids are down over 1% year-over-year.

Results by type:

  • BEVs: 28,306 – up 55% at 14.1% market share
  • PHEVs: 21,583 – down 1% at 10.8% market share
  • Total: 49,889 – up 24% at 24.9% market share

So far this year, more tan 89,000 new passenger plug-in cars were registered in Germany:

  • BEVs: 49,198 – up 42% at 12.8% market share
  • PHEVs: 40,483 – down 5% at 10.5% market share
  • Total: 89,681 – up 16% at 23.3% market share

Once again we see Mercedes-Benz and BMW among the top plug-in car brands (mostly thanks to PHEVs). However, in February, the Tesla duo managed to sell a significant 5,944 electric cars.

It means that Volkswagen was not able to secure a podium position in its home market, which is a small surprise, considering its several BEV models. Tesla is ahead of Volkswagen also year-to-date.

Another finding is that Hyundai is now delivering a lot of electric cars in Germany.

Plug-in car registrations by brands (at least 2,000) last month:

  • Mercedes-Benz: 6215 – 1652 BEVs and 4563 PHEVs
  • Tesla: 5944
  • BMW: 4995 – 1698 BEVs and 3297 PHEVs
  • Volkswagen: 4336 – 2859 BEVs and 1477 PHEVs
  • Audi: 3345 – 1481 BEVs and 1864 PHEVs
  • Hyundai: 3229 – 2407 BEVs and 822 PHEVs

In February, the Tesla Model 3 was the most registered electric car in Germany with 3,690 units. Because of that, the Model 3 skyrocketed to #1 YTD.

Also, the Tesla Model Y noted a very strong month with 2,254 units, which means that it’s #3 YTD (not far from #2).

Sales of the other models rarely exceeded 1,000. The Fiat 500 electric noted 1,392 units (2,653 YTD and #2).

The top all-electric models year-to-date:

  • Tesla Model 3 – 3967
  • Fiat 500 electric – 2653
  • Tesla Model Y – 2396
  • Hyundai Kona Electric – 2317
  • Volkswagen ID.3 – 1965
  • Volkswagen ID.4 – 1929
  • Renault ZOE – 1925
  • Hyundai Ioniq 5 – 1902
  • BMW i3 – 1756
  • Opel Corsa-e – 1753
