Tesla is now the 20th most popular brand in U.S.
According to our estimations, Tesla sold about 191,627 S/X/3 during the year, while Good Car Bad Car reports 197,517. Regardless of the precise result, Tesla is ahead of Chrysler, with market share of 1.15%.
Current, monthly sales results suggest that in 2019 there is a chance for Tesla to reach #15 (about 300,000) and take over Buick, Audi, Lexus, Mazda, BMW. Maybe there is even a chance for #13 ahead of Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen but that would require 350,000+ sales.
