Tesla Model S Sales Surpass 100,000 in U.S.
It’s hard to believe that more than 100,000 Model S electric sedans have been sold in the U.S. thus far.
It’s even more remarkable an achievement when you consider how costly the plug-in Tesla is to buy.
According to our scorecard, Tesla sold 99,932 Model S EVs through the end of May 2017. That means Tesla had to move just 68 more units in the first half of June to reach the 100,000-unit milestone.
It’s safe to assume Tesla sold far more than 68 units in the past 18 days, so we can now state that Model S sales have surpassed 100,000 in the U.S.
For a ballpark $100,000 vehicle, that’s quite an achievement in its 65 months on the market.
Model S sales were approaching 9,000 units YTD 2017 through the end of May. Last year, Model S sales totaled some ~28,896 in the U.S.
It remains to be seen how the upcoming Model 3 will impact S sales, but we’ll find out soon enough with the 3 set to launch in just a few weeks’ time.
