Germany's VDA automobile federation revealed that car sales had increased by 19% in April, compared with the same period last year.
However, the rise in sales was not as sharp as the 40% figure for March.
The German scrappage scheme gives owners €2500 (around £2200) for trading in a car that's over nine years old.
Other European countries have not fared so well, with France experiencing a fall of 7% in April and 7.5% in Italy for the same period.
The UK's scrappage scheme comes into effect later this month.
