The German car market continues to decline. However, in the month of May 2022 the decline has moderated. The car sales in germany have accounted for a total of 207,199 units. This volume of registered cars, if compared to that obtained in the same period of time the previous year, represents a significant decrease of 10.2%. The difference with the fall experienced in April is notable.
Germany continues to face many challenges. The stock crisis in dealerships due to the global shortage of microchips is now added to the economic uncertainty due to the inflationary process in which we find ourselves. All this within the framework of a transition process to electric mobility. Sales figures are being affected by these issues. In the period between the months of January and May, new car registrations have accumulated 1,013,417 units, 9.3% less than in 2021.

Volkswagen Golf, the best-selling car in Germany in May 2022
What have been the most popular models? If we take a look at ranking of the best-selling cars in Germany we will find important changes in relation to previous editions of this monthly delivery list. In what there are no changes is in the model that leads this market. The victory has been, once again, for the Volkswagen Golf.
In second position is the Volkswagen T-Roc and, closing the podium, in third place, we have the Opel Corsa. At the gates the Volkswagen Passat has remained. Despite the “SUV fever” that the Old Continent is experiencing, the Volkswagen sedan remains at the top of the ranking of the most popular cars among German drivers.
It is also worth making a special mention of the Ford Kuga. Sales of the Ford SUV have grown by 44.1% and it enters the Top 10 with force. It is not usual to see it so high. On the other side of the coin we find the Volkswagen Tiguan. Although in the accumulated list it holds second position, in May it settled for thirteenth place.
