Only 11.9 percent of new cars in Germany run on electricity

The electric car's market share has plummeted since Germany suspended state subsidies for the type of car with immediate effect in December last year.

While the Danish market for new cars generally performs best among the Scandinavian countries, Europe's largest car market is bleeding.

In Germany, it is easy to trace that the country's government removed all support for electric cars with immediate effect last December.

The government would rather spend the subsidy kroner on patching gaping holes in the state coffers. Gaps that mean, among other things, that the company behind the German motorway network is missing billions of euros. Read more about it here .

The consequence of the lack of support for the purchase of electric cars could already be seen in January, when Germans bought 55 percent fewer electric cars. The decline has since leveled off a bit.

But development continues only one way. Namely downwards. And now electric cars are also losing market share. This is shown by the latest report from the German traffic authority KBA.

Out of 263,844 new cars that hit German roads in March, just 31,384 of them were pure electric cars. This corresponds to a market share of just 11.9 percent.

In fairness, it must be said that both diesel, petrol and hybrid cars also went backwards. It looks best for the diesel cars, which could be satisfied with a decline of 0.5 percent to a market share of 18.3 percent.

According to marklines.com, there is no indication that the market for new cars is correcting. On the contrary, it seems that Germans will continue to buy fewer cars this year.

At home, De Danske Bilimportorer fears seeing a similar curve for electric cars if Christiansborg does not stick to the lower registration fee. However, there are indications that the goal is still to have a 150 percent tax on electric cars in 2035. Read more about this here .
