Germany to ‘fall short’ of electric car target

Germany hopes to put one million electric cars on the roads by 2020, but just 3,000 have been sold this year. A study released on Tuesday casts doubt on sales projections.

Electric cars have been among the highlights of the IAA motorshow in Frankfurt which opened last week. New models include the BMW’s i3.

But despite the technology being around for a while, electric car sales are yet to take off in Germany, the Süddeutsche newspaper reported on Tuesday.

With 3,000 models sold this year, the country is less than 0.2 percent of the way to achieving its target of one million vehicle sales by 2020.
