In June, Tesla simply outsold all the other manufacturers by a margin so huge that even the 2nd or 3rd best struggle to compete.
Global plug-in electric car sales reached the second-best result ever this past month, which hints that a new record is now just months away.
The total sales exceeded 264,500 according to EV Sales Blog, at a growth rate of 67% year-over-year. The market share improved to 3.3% - so on average, every 30th car sold worldwide is a plug-in.
