After a slow start, sales of the ID. Buzz and ID. Buzz Cargo have picked up, likely swinging the advantage to Volkswagen.

Volkswagen has regained the top spot in EV sales in Germany through the first seven months of the year, surpassing both Tesla and the German luxury car manufacturers Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz.

From January through July, VW registered slightly more electric vehicles than Tesla did, largely due to the popularity of its recently released ID. Buzz passenger van and its commercial variant, the ID. Buzz Cargo.

Volkswagen sold 41,475 electric vehicles in Germany through July, while Tesla sold 40,289 units, per data from the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) shared by Automobilwoche (via Electrek). Both companies sold more than twice as many electric vehicles as Mercedes-Benz, which came in third with 20,613 new customers.

Hyundai came in at a close sixth with 15,411 registrations, behind the likes of Audi (15,786) and BMW (15,987).

Since its debut last year, sales of Volkswagen’s all-electric ID. Buzz have steadily increased as production has ramped up. In Germany, the company moved 2,815 ID. Buzz EVs in the first seven months, with 536 sold in the month of July alone.The ID. Buzz only accounted for about 7% of Volkswagen’s electric vehicle registrations in Germany during the period in question, but it was almost certainly the model that decided the race.

The Volkswagen ID.4 and ID.5, both hatchbacks, together with their GTX performance variants, accounted for the vast majority of the company’s 22,405 EV registrations as of the end of July. Next in line was the smaller ID.3 hatchback, which racked up 13,647 registrations, followed by the e-up city car, which tallied 2,943 registrants.

In Germany, Tesla has sold 29,829 Model Ys through seven months, which accounts for nearly 75% of the total registrations for the brand. The Model 3 came in second with 9,045 registrations, far behind the Model S (855 registrations) and the Model X (494 registrations).

The Mercedes-Benz EQA compact crossover accounted for 7,813 of the company’s EV registrations. SAIC’s MG has amassed 11,638 registrations, Geely’s Polestar 4,210, and BYD’s 632, all of which demonstrate rapid expansion of Chinese-owned brands in the German market.

Between January and July, 268,926 electric vehicles were registered for the first time in Germany, while 1.64 million new registrations were for vehicles powered by internal combustion engines.
