The Tesla Model 3 breaks into the German Top 10 for the first time in June.
New car sales in Germany are up 24.5% year-on-year in June to 274.152, leading to a year-to-date tally up 14.9% to 1.390.889.

In the brands ranking, Volkswagen (+46.1%) almost doubles the market growth rate to reach 20.8% share vs. 19.9% so far this year, while BMW (+20.9%) repeats at #2 and now also ranks in 2nd place year-to-date. Audi (+29%) edges past the market to remain at #3 while Mercedes (-19.3%) is in difficulty at #4. Opel (+69.3%) is back inside the Top 5 both in June and year-to-date, taking advantage of a lukewarm month by Skoda (+12.5%).
