New registrations of electric cars in April 2022: Big crash in the Stromer

In April, electric cars lose significantly, both in terms of market share and in absolute numbers. Tesla is also to blame for this.

New registrations of electric cars fell from 34,474 to 22,175 units from March to April 2022. A drop of 36 percent within a segment within a month is severe, but the decline compared to the same month of 2021 is not quite as strong at 6.9 percent. Nevertheless: The self-confident electrical department has taken a break with its constant growth.

The market share of e-cars also fell noticeably. In view of a total of 180,264 new registrations (minus 21.5%), the electric vehicles accounted for 12.3 percent of new registrations in April 2022, compared to 14.3 percent in March. The enormous drop compared to March is mainly due to Tesla. While the US manufacturer shone with a total of over 8,000 new registrations a month ago and easily occupied the first two places, in April it was not even enough for a place in the top 20 for Model 3 and Model Y.

Instead, minis and compacts ranked at the top this month, with the Fiat 500 E, which came first, not having soared at all, but performing at a similar monthly level as before. The others were just worse. It is now a truism that, in view of the numerous model series that have been completely sold out, it is less the will of the buyer than the ability of the industry to deliver. But there is currently no improvement in sight.

The supply shortage brings curious results. Although customers are queuing and additional demand is being generated given the uncertainty surrounding future subsidies, sales of electric cars are falling sharply. The difference at Tesla in April is huge. The Model 3, which took first place last month, is no longer even in the top 20. A month ago, the number of new Model 3 registrations was 15 times higher.
