Since Tesla launched the Model 3, it’s been a real commercial success. This electric car has topped the list of best-selling models in the world, boosting the performance of the brand.
This domination was to be guaranteed for a little longer, but Tesla’s Model 3 lost the throne in the first quarter of 2022. There is a new leader and promises to conquer sales and especially drivers. Come and find out who is the new star of this market.
Sales of electric cars have been experiencing unique growth for several quarters. We already have countries where traditional cars have been overtaken and their sales are already lower than what electric cars can bring to market.
After several years of total dominance, Tesla's Model 3 eventually lost a prominent place in the electric car market. It is no longer the bestseller and has to settle for second place, with 127,936 units sold.
Dominating this scenario, we now have its latest companion in Tesla's offering. We are talking about the Model Y, which in the first quarter of 2022 managed to reach sales of 169,682 electric cars.
With a list that includes 15 Chinese-made cars in the top 20, it is positive that we have a European car in the top 10. Volkswagen manages to place its ID.4 in eighth position, with 29,444 electric cars sold in the first 3 months of 2022.
When it comes to brands, the scenario is very different. Tesla continues to dominate the market, but now we have many European manufacturers, BMW and Volkswagen closing the top 5, just below BYD and SGMW, two Chinese brands.
it is expected that this scenario will be maintained and that sales of the Tesla Model Y will increase, definitely beating the Model 3. This should become one of the best-selling electric cars for many months to come and thus ensure that Tesla continues to dominate this market.
