Tesla Model 3 became the 3rd best-selling car in Germany in November. The manufacturer's sales grew by 93% and played a key role in the growth of the EV market.
The German car market is in a fairly lively state by the end of the year. According to the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamtes (KBA), 260,512 vehicles were registered in November, up 31.3% from the same month last year. The battery electric vehicle (BEV) market continues to grow rapidly and sales here reached 57,980 units last month and occupied 22.3% of the automotive market. Tesla played one of the main roles in this, registering 10,810 vehicles, and increasing sales by 93% compared to the same period last year.
In November, Tesla Model 3 attracted the most attention from German consumers, although it is more likely that the company simply spread the deliveries of its models among different countries. While Model Y shone in many European markets, in those markets sales of Model 3 were noticeably low. So in November, for Germany, the company probably focused on Model 3 deliveries; with 6,811 registrations, the car became the 3rd best-selling car in the country. The sedan from the Texas-based company was outperformed by Volkswagen Golf with 7,033 registrations in 1st place, and Fiat 500E with 6,867 units in 2nd.

In November, Tesla registered 3,867 Model Ys in Germany, apparently shipping the bulk of the Giga Berlin-produced units to other European countries and to Taiwan. However, this number allowed the car to take 6th place on the list of best-selling cars in Germany. It can be assumed that in December Giga Berlin will supply Model Y mainly to the local market, and will reach a new record.
