Germany September 2021: Tesla Model 3 only 58 sales below VW Golf, market down -25.7%

The Tesla Model 3 just misses out on an outright victory in Germany.

The German new car market dives -25.7% year-on-year in September to 196.972 units, tilting the year-to-date volume into negative territory at -1.2% and 2.017.561. We have adjusted our 2021 Forecast slightly down to 2.79 million units (-4%) which would be the lowest annual German volume in 36 years: since 1985 (2.38m). In the brands ranking, Volkswagen (-23.3%) and BMW (-18.7%) both resist better than their home market and cement their leading positions in the ranking. Mercedes (-49.8%) implodes to 7% share vs. 8.2% so far this year. Opel (-1.2%) posts the best result in the Top 9 and climbs to #4, its highest ranking since September 2018 (#3). Hyundai (-11.8%)  breaks into the German Top 5 for the very first time at #5, eclipsing its previous ranking record of #6 set just last month. Reversely Ford (-51.3%), Skoda (-47.5%), Audi (-38.9%) and Renault (-33.3%) all sink. Tesla (+157.8%) goes completely against the negative trend and cracks the German Top 10 for the first time at #10 with 4% share. Other gainers further down include Cupra (+4552.5%), Maserati (+212.5%), Alpine (+157.1%), Lada (+116.1%), Polestar (+108.7%), DS (+73.8%), Rolls Royce (+66.7%), Aston Martin (+58.8%), Suzuki (+50%), Smart (+23%), Lexus (+20.1%) and Bentley (+18%).

Historical event in the German models ranking: the VW Golf’s pole position is under threat: down -41% year-on-year it only holds 3.5% of its home market. In contrast, the Tesla Model 3 (+146%) takes the brand’s backloading in end-of-quarters to the next level and ends the month at #2 overall, only 58 sales below the Golf and smashing its ranking, volume (6.828) and share (3.5%) records in the process. A staggering performance by the world’s favourite EV. The Opel Corsa (-31.6%) rallies back up 22 spots on August to land on the third step of the podium, while the Fiat 500 lineup (-30%) breaks its ranking record for the second month running at #4. The BMW 3 Series (+16.5%) shines but is down two ranks on last month to #5, distancing the VW T-Roc (-15.7%) and Up (+25.4%). The Hyundai Kona (-9.3%) breaks into the German Top 10 for the second time after last December (#10) at a record #8 while the new gen Opel Mokka delivers the nameplate’s first ever Top 10 at #9 (previous best #12 in August 2017). The Skoda Enyaq is up 25 spots on August to climb to a record 23rd place, just as the Tesla Model Y is up 13 to #62 and the Hyundai Ioniq 5 is up 14 to #68. This month we welcome the Hyundai Staria at #156 and the Kia EV6 at #273.

  1. chip shortage – is a fairy tale for donkeys. EVs not have such problem. Why?
    So, what is the REAL cause of such drops of cars selling? extremely interesting question. What do you think?
    may be people NOT have money?
    may be they are waiting for EVs? – good opportunity

    1. Real is that everywhere around biggest plant Mlada Boleslav in CZ are many thousands unfinished cars without microchips. Small airports are used for this operations.

      This is extremly expensive and profit problem now causes production cut. VW prefers with chips Audi and Porsche for rest this year to save profit. Electric cars especially Tesla use minimum advanced chips to manage car electronic. VW is very afraid about Tesla productivity and about new brandenburg plant round the corner. It’s time to chanche car building. They don’t want to end up like NOKIA.

  2. Tesla with 7,903 is ahead of Toyota with 7,394. All expectations for approval of production start in Giga-Berlin. After that the imports from USA/China will slowly decrease as production ramps up.

    Seems toyo just sold whatever they had in inventory, with 40% production cut in sep, their sales suffered bigger decrease in china/usa.

  3. Likely NEVER happened before in the German market, let alone in a regular post holiday September month:

    No Benz in top 25 (,,)

    Benz E, the icon, at #50
    Benz C at #87

  4. I just want to say, Toyota please increase your production, no matter what. It was a good opportunity to take market share in Europe all ruined by Vietnam and Malaysia. So fustrating. My predictions started getting crushed from August onwards.

    1. chip shortage is affecting every automaker, toyota cut their production by 40% in september & october, thats the reason for their sales cut.

      in china, BEVs are increasing by leaps and bounds. even after chip supply is restored, we dont know whether toyota will be able to sell as many vehicles. plugin sales in china last month was 357.000 units which is 17% of total sales.

  5. No matter the cause of all this (Covid, MC, EV transition, backloading), the outcome is nothing less than spectacular.

    Model 3 almost #1 in Germany, #1 in the UK,
    collaps of the Chinese market hurting VW, Audi and Benz,
    Sandero’s double header in Europe,
    Hyundia/KIA/Genesis’ fresh & fantastic model line-up and ditto sales surge,
    Stellantis being a growing force,
    Tesla’s GF in Berlin a Trojan Horse?,
    Toyota’s world dominance, and #1 ranking in USA,
    the questionable succcessrate E-newbee’s such as NIO and Rivian and a dozen others,
    the tens of billions invested in battery tech …..

    …… all I know we’re glued to BSCB to monitor what’s hot and not 😉

    1. As an European that’s great to see the European auto industry (and not only) shrinking… And in a few years most of the imported cars sold in Europe will come from China even the European brands. Welcome to the New World Order.
