Overall, Tesla registrations stand at 91,933, which is 71% more than a year ago, however, it's associated only with the Model Y, as the remaining three models noted a decrease.
One of the most important metrics is that Tesla holds over 68.8% of the all-electric car segment in the U.S.
Besides the three Teslas, only the retired Volkswagen e-Golf noted a year-over-year decline, which means that all other models are up.
Tesla is also the fourth best selling luxury brand, according to the report, ahead of Audi:
- BMW - 115,606 (up 50%)
- Lexus - 108,244 (up 50%)

In terms of geographical results - California accounts for 38% of all BEV registrations, which is significantly less than a year ago (45%). It's interesting because registrations in California increased 64% year-over-year. Other states probably are expanding much faster.
The second biggest market is Florida (7.2% share in BEV segment), followed by Texas (5.9%).
