Germany: Tesla leads electric vehicle sales in February

Tesla has been a leader in the automotive sector in Germany since the founding of Giga Berlin.


Germany's KBA released electric vehicle sales data for February, which shows that Tesla has nearly twice as many electric vehicles as any other brand.


Tesla has been a leader in the automotive sector in Germany since founding the Giga Berlin, bringing Model Y production to Europe.


Germany: Tesla leads electric vehicle



Tesla struggled in the German market until the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y became the most popular vehicles in the country countless times over.


Now, the German agency charged with tracking vehicle registrations, KBA, has found that Tesla sold nearly twice as many electric cars as its closest competitor, Volkswagen, during the month of February.


With sales of 11,952 vehicles during February, Tesla was clearly the leader in terms of electric vehicle sales in Germany.


Domestic brands Volkswagen, Audi, and Mercedes were the next most popular, but even combined, they just barely surpassed Tesla's sales for the month.


Volkswagen sold a total of 6,972 electric vehicles, Audi sold 4,767, and Mercedes sold 4,029.


Tesla's most popular Model Y, which was by far the most popular electric car in Germany during the same month, also outsold the vast majority of brands, selling 6,442 units.


It appears that Tesla's leadership in Germany has led to some profound changes from other brands.


Recently, Volkswagen announced a price cut for the next-generation Volkswagen ID.3, bringing it closer to competing with the Model Y.


It is nevertheless more expensive than the Tesla Model 3, which competes in the same market.


Other brands haven't followed VW in introducing price cuts, at least not in Europe, but it has continued to expand its lineups to compete in more market segments.


Mercedes is the best example of this approach, now selling eight market-leading premium models.
