The 2017 Tesla Model S was once a good contender for the Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Volt, but not anymore. This is due to the car maker wanting to take on vehicles that are more upmarket, including EVs from Audi, Mercedes and BMW.
It was only a few years ago when Tesla were laughed at as many people said they wouldn’t be able to make an EV, people laughed louder at the thought of a luxury EV sedan coming from the company. Tesla has had the last laugh of course as they have proven the doubters wrong.
The Tesla Model S has now gone on to become the best-selling luxury sedan over in the US and the sales have increased by about 59% when compared to last year, with 9, 156 units having been sold.
The 2017 Tesla Model S has managed to beat vehicles that include the Mercedes Benz S-Class, Audi A8 and the BMW 7-Series.
The car maker recently announced that they are behind one third of luxury car sales among the large vehicle segment. It isn’t just the 2017 Tesla Model S that has been selling well as the company has sold over 5, 428 Tesla model X crossovers.
