Germany’s favorite electric cars are the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, Peugeot iOn, and Citroen C-Zero. No other electric car model managed to sell more than hundred vehicles during the first six months of 2011 in Germany.
German car sales statistics for the first half of 2011 confirm that electric cars still have some way to go before being accepted as an alternative to regular or even hybrid cars. In total, less than a thousand purely electric powered cars were sold in Germany between January and June 2011. Currently the electric passenger vehicle market in Germany is dominated by the Mitsubishi i-MiEV and its technical derivatives Peugeot iOn and Citroen C-Zero.
