Germany’s favorite e-cars: Cheap electro-sound car throws out Tesla-News

The Flensburg Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) publishes the number of new registrations in Germany every month. Site takes a close look at the most popular electric cars in this country. Which are the top 10? Where can you lease them particularly cheaply? We also explain what to look for when leasing and why leasing is particularly worthwhile for electric cars.

In July, electromobility in Germany made another breakthrough: one million electric cars are now driving on German roads. Significantly more electric cars come from abroad. Nevertheless, a German small car bumps the electric king Tesla from the throne: nine times less Tesla Model 3 were approved in July 2021 compared to the previous month. The Americans around Elon Musk not only lose first place, they even fly completely out of the ranking.

A look at Tesla’s admission history shows that strongly fluctuating approvals are absolutely not a novelty for the US electric car pioneer in Germany, because Europe imports all Teslas by cargo ship from the USA. In March 2019, Tesla left more than 2,600 new cars. Two months later it was only around 400 again.

The most popular electric cars in July 2021

More than ten percent of all newly approved cars in June 2021 were electric cars, i.e. 25.464 of a total of around 236.400. In comparison: in May this year a total of 274.150 vehicles approved, 33 of which.420 e-cars were. The number of new registrations is approaching May again.

Among the German brands, Opel is the only car manufacturer who has a plus of 16 percent. Mercedes (-37.6%) and smart (-30.1%) have suffered the greatest minus.

1st place: VW e-up

The VW e-up has been in first place in the new registrations for many months. In June 2021 the sheet turned and the Tesla Model 3 suddenly became the list leader. The departure of the Americans was the luck of the Wolfsburg. Overall, the e-up 2.556 new registrations. The rush to the vehicle is so great that it has no longer been possible since October last year to edit and order the VW e-up in the configurator. Anyone who opts for the Wolfsburg city flight must switch to existing, fully produced vehicles. The e-speedster is particularly popular because it is the ideal city car with a range of 220 kilometers, 83 hp and a length of 3.60 meters. However, leasing prices have increased, the demand regulates the price. Last year were dealt with deals for private individuals of less than 100 euros, the electric speedsters are no longer available for private customers in leasing. Traders still have a chance with 98 net or. 117 euros gross.

2nd place: VW ID.3

According to the current statistics of the KBAS, Volkwagen also takes second place in the most popular e-car models. Specifically, it is the big brother of the e-up: the VW ID.3 (Read a test here). The electrocutch is characterized, among other things, by its large space and its comfortable driving style. But the range is also impressive. In total, buyers can choose between three battery capacities: 45, 58 and 77 kilowatt hours. With the 77 kWh variant, they create ranges of up to 549 kilometers. So the ID is.3 also a suitable car for long distances. On average, the compact car consumes 19.3 kWh 100 kilometers each and about 16 kWh in the city center. Both traders and private individuals can really save on the leasing deals and pay only 50 euros more than for the e-up.

    3rd place: Renault Zoe Z.E. 50 (R110)

    The Zoe is still one of the most popular electric cars in Germany and will stay high in fourth place in July. Around 1.320 new Zoes have been driving on German roads since June. The zoe is larger than a Renault Clio and also offers more space inside. Read a test for the current model with large 50 kWh battery here.

    There are still leasing contracts in which the leasing rate appears very cheap, but at second glance you discover an additional monthly battery rental. If you lease a zoe, we advise against these offers, after all, you will hardly be able to determine battery losses in the leasing period and therefore do not need an option to be able to have the battery replaced. By the way: You can use the zoe from 7.Grab 000 euros – including the purchase of the battery. You can find out how this works in this article.

    4th place: Hyundai Kona

    The KONA belongs to the class of compact SUVs and is with 1.267 new registrations in June according to KBA in 4th place. The electrical variant is offered optionally with a 39 or 64 kWh battery and thus reaches a practical range of 290 kilometers (39 kWh) up to 425 kilometers (64 kWh). The engine power of the two variants differs very clearly with 136 hp and 204 hp. In our test, in addition to the high everyday reach, we also noticed the good basic equipment and the high level of driving comfort. Private individuals currently get the Hyundai Kona for less than 150 euros monthly leasing rate, while the car is available for traders from less than 100 euros.

    5th place: Fiat 500e

    With a share of almost five percent of all approved electric cars in July, the Fiat took 500e and is five places above than in May of this year. With the 500e, Fiat replaces its iconic retro small car with an electric model. At first glance, the electric speedster clearly resembles the predecessors of 1959 and 2007. At second glance, however, it looks much beefier. In the interior, however, he remains true to his predecessors in chic retro design. With its 118 hp, it pushes the good one and a half tons well: at 80 km/h it is after three seconds, for 100 km/h, it takes nine seconds. Depending on the driving profile, a good 200 to 250 kilometers with a battery load. With up to 85 kW on a compatible quick loader, the 500e is charged up to 80 percent after half an hour. You can find the complete test here.

    For just 106.72 euros net or 127 euros gross, both traders and private individuals can currently get the Fiat 500e cheaply in the leasing.

    6th place: Skoda Enyaq IV

    And back to a newcomer: The Skoda Enyaq can hardly be seen on our streets, so it is already catapulting among the ten most popular e-cars in this country. The E-SUV is closely with the VW ID.4 and Audi Q4 e-tron, but has some special features. In each part of the electric vehicle there are solutions that "Simply Clever" are. From the umbrella in the door to the trunk, which is very large thanks to the electrical architecture. In the range test on the motorway, the Enyaq IV 80 even depends on the much more expensive competition from BMW, Mercedes, Polestar and Jaguar. In our practical test, too, we predicted decent ranges of around 350 to 400 kilometers. The Skoda Enyaq can currently load a maximum of 125 kW and fill its large battery packs in 38 minutes from five to 80 percent. The ENYAQ is also well equipped for occasional long distances. For commercial and private customers, the Czechs are available from 147 euros per month.

    7th place: VW ID.4

    With about 1.036 The Volkswagen ID occupies new registrations.4th place in the most popular electric cars in Germany. The electric car is of high quality, offers plenty of space and is available in two batteries: 55 and 77 kWh. With a capacity of 55 kWh, the ID makes it.4 to an average range of around 300 kilometers. In the ADAC test, the testers achieved a range of 385 kilometers with the 77 kWh variant and praised the high level of driving comfort, but criticized a bad ESP vote (here it goes to the test result). You need a good eight hours on an 11 kW wall box to the ID.4 to fill up with 77 kWh battery. The 52 kWh variants only support up to a maximum of 7.2 kW charging power and therefore need at least as long. Thanks to the CCS charging connection, it goes faster on the corresponding quick charging stations. Ideally, a charging process only takes 35 minutes from 10 to 80 percent.

    Commercial customers grab the ID.4 already from 109 euros net or. 129 euros gross monthly in leasing. Private customers still have to add 50 euros.

    8th place: Opel Mokka-e

    The total plus of new registrations at Opel in July 2021 is certainly also thanks to the Opel Mokka-E. For the first time in this ranking, E-SUV took 8th place with 916 vehicles on the streets. The Mokka-E comes with 136 purely electrical horsepower and 50 kWh battery with enough electricity for around 324 standard kilometers. As always, this value is rather optimistic. In our test on a cold February day, our test car set an everyday range of around 250 kilometers. The modern equipment, the high utility and the chic look of the Opel is remarkable.

    The E-SUV is currently particularly cheap in leasing: The monthly leasing rate for commercial customers is just 61 euros net expensive. Private individuals pay 139 euros that is also very cheap for a new electric car.

    9th place: Mini Cooper SE

    Also new in the ranking is the Mini Cooper SE with 841 new registrations. The iconic city car, which was mainly designed for the city and for short distances, comes with an 184 hp engine. With a battery capacity of 32.6 kWh, the Mini makes it an average range of around 240 kilometers (according to WLTP). In practice, however, the highway range is only a good 140 kilometers. The charging capacity is a maximum of 50 kW. According to the site charging time calculator, the electric mini needs 25 minutes on a quick charging station (DC) and approx. 1 hour 30 minutes on a normal charging station (alternating current). The Mini Cooper SE comes with good equipment: In addition to a hands-free system, automatic climate control and a navigation system, the city car has a multifunction steering wheel and acoustic pedestrian protection.

    10th place: Hyundai Ioniq 5

    For a long time, the Hyundai Kona was the only South Korean in this ranking, which had already established itself firmly. Now the next Hyundai follows with the Ioniq 5. It is only an incredible three months on the market and 831 new IoniQs in Germany were approved in July alone. The special thing about the Korean is his loading pace. In our efaher test we were actually able to understand the promises of the manufacturers: in less than 25 minutes the Ioniq 5 from 8 invited to over 80 percent. The Ioniq 5 should also be astonished in terms of range: 400 kilometers with a moderate driving style should be possible. His extraordinary look and many extra realms such as the calf supports that drive out under the seat or the possibility of letting the car drive out of a parking space make the IONIQ 5 a very extravagant e-car.

    In leasing, the Hyundai is still quite expensive, which is due to the novelty and the high interest of the vehicle.

    Overview of over 270 electric cars and phevs

    Your new car should also become an E or at least one hybrid? Then we recommend our car database with over 270 electric cars and phevs. Here you can filter after price, range and much more.

    Why an electric car lease or buy?

    Regardless of whether you lease, finance or pay in cash: Now the time has come for a Stromer. Not to mention the environmental idea, there are a few unbeatable arguments that speak for an electric car:

    Argument 1: The thick funding: The state guarantees a double environmental bonus until the end of 2021. This applies to both electric cars and hybrid cars. 9.There is 000 euros from the state for anyone who wants to buy a new electric car. The Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (advertisement) subsidizes the purchase of electric cars throughout Germany. In addition to buying, the premium also subsidizes the leasing of electric cars. For plug-in hybrids there are at least 6.750 euros. In addition, there are also local support programs and the promotion of wall boxes up to 900 euros if you want to comfortably load your leasing car at home. You can see what funding you expect at your place of residence in our funding database.

    Argument 2: Lower maintenance kosten. You usually get a new car that is often covered with the manufacturer’s guarantee during the term. So you only have to pay maintenance costs that are lower for an electric car than with a combustion engine. Because wear parts such as spark plugs or the expensive oil change are eliminated. The brake wear is also lower.

    Argument 3: Lower consumption costs: A current generally costs less than a benzine -thirsty combustion engine.

    Argument 4: Lower insurance costs: In many cases, insurance for an electric car is also cheaper than for the combustion counter. A recently raised statistics was able to make differences of over 30 percent.

    Argument 5: No vehicle tax: Electric cars are freed from the tax for the next 10 years.

    Tip: Use our cost calculator and compare burners against your new desired e car.

    But what about the range?

    Although the range of electric cars has increased many times over in recent years, the so -called range of range is still very present for many interested parties.

    With our range computer you can see the realistic range under various conditions for all of our e-car models.

    The solid battery (display), which is already acted as the successor to the lithium-ion battery, is characterized by a significantly higher energy density. This ultimately results in the fact that the range increases by almost twice. However, this can be the sale of an electric car with a "old" Battery more difficult.

    Load electric cars

    Anyone who has an electric car never needs fuel again. But electric cars need electricity. "Strom tank" is completely different from "fuel tanks". You can find out how you can load your electric car easiest, with low costs and CO2 neutral

    Your next car will be an electric car – you have decided to lease it. But which facts should be paid for in leasing offers?

    Duration: Ideally, it is 24 months – because then the factory guarantee covers the entire term. If you still want to lease longer (which can also have advantages, like not having to buy new winter tires every two years), we advise you to extend the guarantee. It costs extra, but then they drive really carelessly during the entire leasing period.

    Leasing factor: Here it applies: the lower, the better. The factor is calculated from the term of the leasing, the leasing rate, the purchase price of the car or vehicle list price and the one-off payment. You can find out how you can calculate the leasing factor yourself in this article (display).

    Extra cost: Often a painful evil are the so -called transfer costs, which often cost around 800 to 900 euros. However, this does not mean that the car is put at the door of the door, but that only the car gets to the dealer who has put together this leasing offer. Ideally, the dealer is not too far away from you, as you not only have to pick up the car there but also have to bring back at the end of the leasing period. Attention in additional additional offers such as insurance or service: It is often not worth taking them with you, for example because you are already in a very high damage-free class or because it is an electric car with very low service costs.

    Inclusive kilometer: Basically, the cheap leasing rates are on a basis of 10.000 kilometers mileage each year. Don’t worry, you don’t have to stick to it every year, it is important that you do not exceed these kilometers at the end of the term. By the way: sometimes there are (but not always!) a goodwill of about 2.500 kilometers. If you drive more than the agreed kilometers, pay on it. If you drive less, get something back per kilometer. So you should rather know how many kilometers you drive a year. Calculate it, compare the leasing rate with a higher inclusive kilometer performance and with the multi-kilometer prices (it shouldn’t be more than 7 cents per km!))).

    Down payment: Even in private leasing, it is now common for you not to have anything for your new leasing car (except for the transfer-see above). The exception is the offers for e-cars or plug-in hybrids. However, you only stretch the down payment of 6, for example.000 euros only, because you will receive this money back from the state as part of electric car promotion.

  1. De e-up can hardly be ordered
    There are currently many e-up approved. But these are still residues. It can hardly be ordered new. Also should not be misunderstood that the so -called "Others" gain. Tesla is also stronger than suspected. Since Tesla delivers in quarters. Tesla hardly complies with the delivery, also because the German plant should already produce. Also should not be misunderstood that many ID here.3 and 4 go to companies (car sharing).
