According to industry analyst Matthias Schmidt (schmidtmatthias.de), the Tesla brand and the Tesla Model 3 model were the most popular brand/model in the plug-in market in Western Europe during the first quarter. That is despite the fact that volume deliveries of the Model 3 in Europe started just in February.
Since plug-in electric car sales in Europe (outside of Western Europe are relatively small) we could assume it's true that the Model 3 led the way for all of Europe, too.
Tesla, as a brand, was able to sell more cars than several other brands, including:
- Alfa Romeo
Hopefully, the newly upgraded Model S and Model X will reverse the trend.
Overall, the 12-month rolling number of all-electric car sales in Western Europe is approaching 250,000.
