Despite the challenging past three months, Tesla sales in the U.S. are up 19% so far this year.
During the past three months, Tesla sales in the U.S. decreased year-over-year (according to InsideEVs’ estimation), which is a natural phenomenon after the unprecedented Model 3 ramp-up in 2018 and with only a small slice of the federal tax credit.
The total Tesla U.S. sales in September are estimated at 21,875 (down 27% year-over-year) and all three models were in the red this time.
For the first nine months of 2019, Tesla's U.S.sales stand at 135,725, which is still up 19% compared to the corresponding period of 2018.
Tesla now needs to see, on average, close to 20,000 cars sold per month to beat the total 2018 result of over 191,627 (estimated).
