The 2017 Tesla Model S isn’t going compete with the Chevy Volt or Nissan Leaf anymore. This is due to the fact that the vehicle wants to go upmarket and take on the Audi, BMW and Mercedes vehicles instead.
It was only a few years ago when people would have laughed at the fact of Tesla coming up with an electric luxury sedan, but they did just this with the 2017 Tesla Model S.
Recently it was said that the Tesla Model S is the best-selling luxury sedan over in the US. About a third of sales of the Model S have increased by 59% over the same period the year before as they sold a total of 9, 156 units.
The 2017 Tesla Model S has therefore beaten the sales of vehicles such as the Mercedes Benz S-Class, the BMW 7 and the Audi A8.
In fact they have been behind one third of sales of luxury cars among the large segment and it isn’t just the Tesla Model S that has done well, around 5, 428 units of the Tesla Model X crossover have sold.
