The 2017 Tesla Model S isn’t competing with the likes of the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf any longer. It has now moved on and instead it is going up against some of the more upmarket EVs from Audi, BMW and Mercedes.
It was only a few years ago when people said that Tesla may not be able to produce an EV, the thought of them producing a luxury electric vehicle wasn’t even thought about. They have gone on to prove everyone wrong as this is what they have achieved.
Recently Bloomberg said that the Tesla Model S is the best-selling vehicle in the luxury sedan class in the US. In the 3rd quarter they have sold an increase of 59% of the vehicles when compared to the same time period the year previous, with 9, 156 units.
The 2017 Tesla Model S has sold more than vehicles such as the BMW 7 Series, Mercedes Benz S-Class and Audi 8. The company is behind one third of all sales of EV luxury cars among the large segment and the Tesla Model X crossover has been selling just as well with 5, 428 units sold.
