German car market surges

AFP

Registrations of new cars on German roads leaped 25 percent in August, official data showed yesterday, ahead of the introduction of new stricter EU emissions tests that will shut out some older models, reports AFP from Frankfurt Am Main.

Some 316,405 cars were registered last month, up from 253,680 in August 2017, the KBA transport authority said in a statement.

Industry observers point to the September introduction of the so-called “WLTP” emissions testing standard in the EU as a factor pushing carmakers to offer deep discounts or register vehicles to local sellers in August.

The popularity of diesel cars—whose manipulation to appear less polluting by Volkswagen and other firms prompted the push for WLTP—remains squeezed in Germany, with the fuel accounting for 32.6 percent of new registrations.

But the main beneficiary of drivers’ flight from diesel has been the petrol engine, with a 62.1 percent market share in August.
