Another particular strength of the international manufacturers is their wide range of vehicles with alternative drivetrains. The international manufacturers launched particularly low-emission models on the market at an early stage and are currently very successful: the best-selling battery electric car in Germany comes from a VDIK member company (2020). Even the plug-in hybrid with the highest number of registrations is an imported car. In 2020, close to 150,000 hybrid vehicles without plugs were registered by VDIK member companies. Customers can also buy modern fuel cell vehicles from VDIK companies. The VDIK market share for natural gas and liquid gas is well over 75 percent.
An overview of all models can be found in the list of the current range of electric vehicles offered by VDIK member companies. The list contains around 180 electric vehicles that can be ordered and purchased by customers in Germany.
