Although the current position of Tesla in the Electric Vehicles market is at stake, because of all the negative headlines surrounding the company and the increasingly controversial CEO Elon Musk in recent weeks, it is not to forget the fact that the company’s cars are still very popular. Despite Musk’s Twitter takeover and the instability that came with it, it is still very early to determine if these factors will have a significant negative impact on demand for Tesla’s cars. Also, because Tesla very clearly currently positions as the maker of the most popular electric cars in the United States and in many parts of the world.
The data driven from Cox Automotive’s Kelley Blue Book shows that four out of six best-selling electric cars in the United States in the first nine months of 2022 were Teslas. These best sellers include Tesla’s most popular models: Model Y and Model 3, which towered head and shoulders above the competition. In total, Tesla captured roughly two thirds of the EV market in the first three quarters of 2022 and full-year delivery figures don’t indicate any significant changes in the fourth quarter.
