Germany in scrappage fever: After almost six months of scrapping, a good 300,000 car buyers can still benefit from the state cash injection. Around two thirds of the funds have been used up. But it is surprising "Charts" of the models that have so far rolled into the scrap press.

B.As of June 30, 2009, 1,679,385 applications for the scrapping premium had been submitted. 1,199,225 of them using the digital reservation procedure. Accordingly, many cars ended up being scrapped. But which brands and which models did the Germans send on the way to everything earthly?

The current statistics of the Federal Office for Economics and Export Control (Bafa) in Frankfurt / M. lists the VW Golf at the top. By June 18, it made up around 10.5 percent of all scrapped cars. But the Golf wouldn’t be the Germans’ favorite car if they hadn’t bought it again. Five percent of all new car purchases and almost nine percent of all year-old cars bought were VW Golfs. That’s 27,834 cars.

Of two models, however, more new cars were sold, but they too belong to the large Wolfsburg car family: 6.8 percent of all applications for environmental bonuses have so far been for the Skoda Fabia, 5.9 percent for a VW Polo.

Every 10,000. Car in the German scrap press was a duck (Citroën 2 CV), a Wartburg, a Porsche, a BMW 323, a Chrysler Cherokee, a Mercedes 180 and 300, a Lancia Coupe, a Mazda 6, an Opel Caravan, a Nissan Prairie, a Peugeot 605, a Toyota RAV4, a VW Multivan or a Volvo 960.

Five models were loyal to the scrappers in particularly large numbers: In addition to the Golf, Opel Corsa and Astra, Ford Fiesta and Fiat Punto appear in the "scrapping hit list" as well as in the top ten "scrapping winners" (New and annual cars).

The current half-year balance of the Federal Motor Transport Authority in Flensburg shows 2.06 million newly registered cars this year. June was the strongest month to date with 427,111 new registrations. The increase over the first half of 2008 is 26.1 percent.

The annual trend towards micro (+ 124%) and small cars (+ 79%) increased in June. The compact segment also recorded a solid growth rate of 27 percent. The downward trend in the upper middle class (-18.5%), the upper class (-24%) and sports cars (-30%) remains unchanged..

Accordingly, the manufacturers have reason to be happy or sad. While VW (+31.2%), Opel (+29.8%), Ford (+44.0%) and Smart (+8.0%) benefited, some of the other German brands fell sharply (Mercedes – 15.9%). Among the importers, Hyundai made the biggest leap forward with 131 percent. Fiat moved up to third place with a plus of 107 percent. The strongest importer is still Renault / Dacia with an increase of 47.6 percent.

After the Bundestag and Bundesrat approved the increase in funds for the scrapping bonus by 3.5 billion to five billion euros, Bafa has also started to send out those reservation notices and to pay out bonuses that exceed the original funding amount of 1.5 billion euros.

The period of six months between reserving the award and registering the new car has been extended to nine months. However, the latest date for the new registration remains June 30, 2010.
