Electric cars are supposed to be the future of the automotive industry.

But while countries like Norway are setting records for the registration of new e-cars, Germany is lagging behind.

After all, thanks to generous funding, the goal of one million electric cars was achieved in this country in July.

An evaluation of current figures from the Federal Motor Transport Authority shows in which federal states most drive.

According to this, Hamburg and Baden-Württemberg have the highest proportions of electric cars in Germany.

In the Hanseatic city, pure electric vehicles make up 1.4 percent of all cars registered there.

In Baden-Württemberg it is 1.3 percent.

The deadline is October 1st.

The German average is 1.1 percent.

Bavaria, Schleswig-Holstein and Hesse also rank above this mark with 1.2 percent each.

Berlin and Lower Saxony are roughly on par.

Below the average, North Rhine-Westphalia follows with 1.0 percent, Rhineland-Palatinate and Bremen with 0.9 percent each, and Saarland with 0.8 percent.

The lowest values ​​are found in the eastern German territorial states: In Thuringia and Brandenburg it is 0.7 percent, in Saxony 0.6 and in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Saxony-Anhalt 0.5 percent each.

If plug-in hybrids are also included in the analysis, the front runners and the taillights remain the same.

Hamburg is then ahead with 2.9 percent, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Saxony-Anhalt come in at 1.0 percent.

The national average is then 2.1 percent.

The proportion of electric cars on German roads is still low overall, but has recently increased significantly.

At the beginning of the year, pure electric cars only made up 0.6 percent of cars nationwide, in Hamburg it was just under 0.9 percent at the time.

A lot has happened at the European level too.

7.5 percent of newly registered cars in Europe run on batteries - twice as many as in the previous year.
