Thanks to Florian, I can now share with you more detailed sales figures for Germany from 1948 onwards! The first period I have updated goes from 1948 (when 26,800 cars were sold in the country) to 1961 (up to 1,095,128).
Witness the constant domination of the VW Beetle, passing the 100,000 yearly sales in 1954 and the 200,000 units in 1959 to reach what would remain its record year in 1961 at 348,929 sales!
Follow the career of the legendary BMW Isetta, peaking at 22,543 sales in 1956 and see the Opel Rekord becoming only the second model after the Beetle to sell over 100,000 units in one year in Germany with 135,530 sales in 1959…
