In China, new registrations of e-vehicles fell by 4% to 1.2 million, reports the Center of Automotive Management (CAM) in Bergisch Gladbach. Since subsidies were reduced in China in mid 2019, the market has “literally collapsed”. In the US, the decline in 2019 is likely to be as high as 10%, which means just 324,000 new vehicles. In contrast, 109,000 new registrations were recorded in Germany, some 41,000 more than in the previous year. 58% of these were pure e-cars and 42% plug-in hybrids. The CAM predicts very strong momentum in Germany and Europe in 2020, driven primarily by “massive product efforts” by many manufacturers.
