Tesla Model 3 in second place in new German registrations > teslamag.de

In a generally subdued German car market, the Tesla Model 3 inched further to the top this March. Back in February, the number of new Tesla registrations for a month in the middle of the quarter was surprisingly high, pushing the Model 3 into the top 3 for cars of all driving types (but only if you don’t count all variants). . of Mini as one). In March, however, the electric car was undoubtedly second among all new German registrations, only surpassed by the VW Golf.

Model 3 and model in front electric cars

The Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) announced on Tuesday that Tesla set a new record for new registrations in Germany in March 2022. Together with the Model Y, some of which first rolled out of the German Gigafactory in Grünheide, they increased to 8045 pieces. That was 117 percent more than in March 2021 and about 150 percent more than Tesla’s previous record month of September 2021.

KBA figures for the individual models followed on Thursday, showing the strong position of the Model 3 in the entire German market. In March, the Tesla was registered 5,516 times, surpassing only the VW Golf with 7,564 new registrations. Among the purely electric cars, the Tesla was, of course, at the forefront, and then came the next with the Model Y and 2,529 new registrations.

Followers Fiat 500e, BMW i3 and Hyundai Kona Elektro each registered less than 2,000 new registrations. And although Volkswagen still took first and third place for combustion engines with the Golf and Tiguan, you almost have to look for the brand’s electric cars in the KBA figures: ID.4 and ID.5 together were only 1026 times new in Germany in March. 2022 approved, the smallest VW ID.3 only 681 times. However, its production at Zwickau was almost completely suspended for the month.

Tesla invades the German premium trio

Meanwhile, the Tesla Model 3 has to increasingly find its opponents not only among electric cars. Already in February, the entire middle class with combustion engines had to admit defeat, and in March it was like that again. And even if you look at a full quarter, which you should have done at Tesla due to logistics-related delivery surges, things are getting tougher for the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class. The German premium trio’s C-Class and 3-Series were able to hold a few hundred new registrations ahead of the Model 3 in the first quarter of 2022, but the A4 and its sporty offshoots were already 500 short.
