In April 2022, 45,992 electric vehicles (24,287 of which were fully electric vehicles and 21,705 plug-in hybrids) were registered in Germany. That represents a quarter of the total new registrations in the month of April. The current total figure: 1.5 million e-vehicles, of which almost 800,000 are fully electric.

The number of  new vehicle registrations decreased in April 2022 by more than 20 per cent compared to April of last year. One of the reasons is a drop in production because of the chip shortage. The decline in fully electric vehicles however, is considerably smaller at only 3.5 per cent.
