Tesla Now Accounts For 45% Of Plug-In Electric Cars Sales In U.S.
Will that figure exceed 50% soon?
In June, Tesla sold some 11,362 electric cars in the U.S., according to IEVs estimations, and that’s enough to achieve a new record share for the plug-in market.
Believe it or not 45% of all plug-in cars sold last month (25,179) were Tesla cars, and that’s when you include plug-in hybrids. Limiting it to just BEVs (14,612), Tesla dominated the market at nearly 78%.
The previous peak months were September 2016 (44%) and March 2016 (42%).
Because we expect that Tesla Model 3 production should be above 5,000 a week for most of this month, there should not be a problem with exceeding 50% share among all plug-in cars in the U.S.
The question is how high could that figure reach this year – 60%, 70%?
