The Germans want new diesel cars – Tesla has collapsed

Again in May, sales of new electric cars were collapsing in Germany. Overall, electric cars fell 31 percent compared to the same period last year.

Again in the month of May, German interest in new electric cars plummeted. Overall, sales fell by 31 percent compared to the same period last year.

Already in January, sales fell by 51 percent. This must be seen in the context of the fact that the German government removed all state subsidies that the country's motorists could get for new electric cars the month before.

Figures from the German traffic authority KBA reveal that 13,374 fewer new electric cars were sold in the month of May. At the same time, the number of new petrol cars increased by two percent.

However, the diesel cars did even better. The dealers could note an increase of three percent. Overall, 19 percent of all new cars in Germany now run on diesel. But the share of electric cars is down to 12.6 percent of the market.

The worst has gone for Tesla. The American car brand must come to terms with the fact that sales in Europe's largest car market have declined by as much as 64 percent.

It has to be seen in relation to 2023, when the Tesla Model Y, similar to the conditions in Denmark, was the motorists' favorite new car. Something else interesting is that, for the first time in a long time, the Germans have turned their backs on SUVs. Sales of the car type fell by 5.5 percent.

The picture is different at home, where the government is still willing to keep the vast majority of electric cars tax-free. And yet. Because even in Denmark, Tesla can no longer hold on to the status of favorite. It instead belongs to a Japanese brand. Read more about it here .
