Tesla is claiming that they have taken over the competition in the full size luxury sedan market in the US; however an observer in the auto industry has said that perhaps the 2017 Tesla Model S joined the wrong party.
Tesla said that they sold 9, 156 units of the Tesla Model S during the third quarter in the US and this saw a jump up of 59% compared to the year previous. This means that it sold almost twice as more as the Mercedes Benz S-Class.
But you do have to wonder whether the Tesla Model S is really a large luxury sedan. It seems that perhaps the vehicle should be in the midsize category than the full sized sedan.
The reason we say this is that the Tesla Model S has a price tag that should put it in the midsized category. It comes in with a price tag of $30,000 less than the Mercedes S-Class and $16,000 less than the BMW 7-Series.
Whether the Tesla Model S should be in the midsized category or the large category doesn’t really matter to Tesla. All that they care about is that the vehicle has sold more than the Mercedes Benz S-Class and BMW 7 Series.
