Tesla really struggled with the Model 3 when it first came to the market with the company not being able to deliver the car initially. However, as soon as the issues were attended to, sales soared and have remained incredibly impressive since then. In 2019, the Model 3 was the best selling country in both Norway and the Netherlands. Yeah, that’s not bad, is it?
In fact, as luxury sedan sales decreased in the US, Model 3 sales increased, and in the last quarter of 2019 was the 7th most sold car in the United States behind the Toyota Camry, Corolla, Honda Civic, Honda Accord, Hyundai Elantra, and the Nissan Altima. The Model 3 had sales in the US of 46,500 units.
It’s clear from the graph above, from WHEELSJOINT.COM, the Model 3 has been detrimental to the other sedans on the market. And while industry experts expected the same declining sales for the Model 3 after a growth stage, its sales have kept rising.
The Model 3 became the fresh new face in the motoring industry and offered something that any driver would want. From performance to space and ease of use to an affordable price, it has it all. The fact that it’s an EV is just another cherry on top. This makes us wonder how the Model Y is going to tear up the rulebook, too.
