The Tesla Model 3 is about to become the best-selling electric car of 2021 after a year in which not only did its sales maintain a steady rhythm, but during which, for example, it was announced as the best-selling car in Europe a month later.
Based on data extracted from JATO Dynamics for the year about to expire, it was found that as of the end of November, a total of 113,397 Tesla Model 3s were marketed in Europe.
The above data is a massive 84% increase over last year, and places the Model 3 well ahead of its direct follower on the best-selling electric vehicle list. The second most successful model on the Old Continent is the Volkswagen ID.3 electric, a model that had 63,109 units during the first 11 months of the year, which is a 125% increase over the previous year, although it should have been. He noted that during 2019, ID.3 had hardly been commercialized in the past two months.
For the success of what is the most affordable Tesla model, we must add the attribution of the second model of the brand that will finally make Tesla 2% of the total sales share in Europe at the end of the year. This is the Tesla Model Y, an electric car that is just beginning to be marketed in Europe but that actually managed to sneak into the top 10 bestsellers in the table last November.
A 2% may seem like a measured share, but putting it into context is more than the share that the Jaguar Land Rover group will have at the end of the year, and we have to keep in mind that Tesla sells only electric cars, this limits the US manufacturer to the military in a market niche, according to For analyst Matthias Schmidt’s comments, compiled by Automotive News Europe, they will be about 11% of total sales. Additionally, Schmidt adds that Tesla will likely end the year with 170,000 total sales on the continent.
The analyst also refers to the current situation in the sector and tensions in the supply chain, commenting that if conditions are more normal The total share of pure electric vehicles should be 8% higher.
Although Tesla will be crowned as the best-selling brand of electric cars, it will not be the manufacturer that sold the most electric cars at the end of the year, as it expects the position to be occupied by the Volkswagen Group (not the manufacturer). Volkswagen) thanks to the fact that the addition of electric vehicle sales for its Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda, Porsche and Cupra brands is supposed to total 300,000 EV sales in Europe this year across the brands.
