Elon Musk and his Tesla Model 3 world domination begin. Already a good seller in the European parts of the globe, but now also moving up the ranks in the U.S.A.
Tesla not too long ago released news of a new operating system and has their already regular customers happy with the reports of the upgrade. Other reports were how Tesla was fast becoming a household name in Europa with Norway wanting more and more of the Tesla Models.
Move on to the second quarter of the year 2019 and Tesla ranks up in the top 10 once again according to CleanTechnica. As per the site, they’ve managed around 47 000 plus in sales in the United States.

"In the second quarter of 2019, the Tesla Model 3 was again the only premium-class car on the top 10 ranking of US car sales. According to official figures from automakers and CleanTechnica’s estimate for US Tesla sales, the Model 3 was the 9th best-selling car in the country in the quarter. (Note that this ranking excludes “light trucks” — pickup trucks, SUVs, and crossovers.)"
Mad considering Tesla’s the only premium-class
Elon’s brand is only ninth because of its pricing and the pricing of the other top mid-range brands. Tesla’s a newbie on the market and it will take some time before they start peaking above these trade names.
Toyota (Camry and Corolla), Honda (Civic and Accord), Hyundai Elantra, Nissan (Altima and Sentra), and Ford Fusion – These are all familiars and trusted names that have been in the game for a while, and have been doing it big in the gas, diesel and hybrid game. Soon, the U.S brand should be knocking further up and taking them off their perch.
"The 8 models above the Model 3 are high selling models from Toyota, Honda, and Nissan, as well as the Ford Fusion and Hyundai Elantra. The base prices of all of these models are more than $10,000 lower than the base price of the Model 3. On the surface, that would make it surprising that the Model 3 ranks so highly, but most Tesla owners probably find it a surprising abomination that the Model 3 wasn’t the top-selling car in the country. There are a few key reasons for that. (via: CleanTechnica)"
Another Aspect Keeping Them Down
As long as gasoline and other fuel types keep getting produced, there will still be a shortage of service stations for EV-type cars. However, with more vehicle manufacturers moving towards all-electric this will soon change.
Once there are more states, countries and continents supporting the infrastructures of the EV generation, Tesla should be well on their way with a more perfected version of their Tesla Models and will be killing the game in sales for years to come.
