Tesla Model 3 Outsold All Mercedes-Benz Passenger Cars Combined
And passengers cars from BMW, Audi, Lexus and so on…
Here is a more detailed look at the Tesla Model 3 and its closest competitors in the segment.
Tesla already stated that the Model 3 outsold in July all other models from the mid-sized sedan segment in the U.S. But this new graph shows us how big the difference really is compared to a few particular models.
According to AID, around 13,000 Model 3 (numbers vary depending on estimations) were sold last month compared to just:
- ≈3,800 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
- ≈3,400 Audi A4
- ≈3,200 BMW 3-Series
- ≈2,100 Lexus IS
Well, Model 3 not only outsold particular models (all passenger cars except for maybe seven), but for example, it outsold all Mercedes-Benz passenger cars – ≈8,500 (SUVs excluded). Mercedes-Benz sold in total just 20,034 vehicles in July (down 22.7%).
Interestingly, Ford and Chevrolet don’t have a single passenger model that can beat the Model 3 in volume. That’s rather surprising to us, but what’s really intriguing is the outlook for the Model 3 in the coming months when production increase even more.
Model 3 July: 13k
Mercedes passenger car models combined: 8.5k
No passsenger car models from Ford or Chevrolet sold more
