Tesla continues to amaze and capture an increasing share of the EV market in Germany. According to published data, Tesla Model 3 became the most sold EV in the country in March 2021, ahead of the local VW models.
There were 13,101 new electric vehicles registered in March 2021 in Germany, according to the German Federal Road Transport Administration (KBA), an increase of +191.4% over the same period last year. Tesla Model 3 played a very important role in this growth, accounting for 12.3% of all sales in the segment.
With 3,699 units registered, Tesla Model 3 became Germany's best-selling electric vehicle in March. In the second place, slightly lagging behind the American competitor, is the VW e-up! with 3,599 new registrations. Closing out the top three is the Hyundai Kona Electric with 3,237 new registered models.
From January to March, 64,694 all-electric vehicles were registered in Germany. At the moment, the leading position is occupied by VW e-up! with 7,260 new registrations. Although Q1 of the year is traditionally the most moderate for Tesla, the company was able to deliver and register 6,031 Model 3s in Germany, making it the second best-selling electric vehicle in the country. In third place is VW ID.3 with 5,951 registrations.
The closer we get to the start of production at Tesla's new factory in Germany, the more welcoming the Germans are to the manufacturer's cars. As soon as the first Model Ys begin to roll off the assembly line, the manufacturer's sales figures in the country will grow significantly.
