The 2017 Tesla Model S isn’t going up against rivals Nissan Leaf and the Chevrolet Volt anymore. Instead it is looking to take on the more upmarket electric vehicles from BMW, Mercedes and Audi.
Just a few years ago many people doubted that Tesla would be able to produce an electrical vehicle, never mind a huge luxury EV sedan. However they have gone on to prove people wrong.
Bloomberg recently said that the Tesla Model S has now become the best-seller among luxury sedans in the US.
The third quarter sales of the Tesla Model S have, in comparison to last year at the same time, made an increase by 59% with a total of 9, 156 units of the vehicle having been sold.
This means that the 2017 Tesla Model S has beaten vehicles such as the BMW 7 Series, Audi A8 and the Mercedes Benz S-Class.
Tesla said that they are behind a third of all sales of luxury cars in the large segment at the moment and it appears that it isn’t just the Tesla Model S that has been doing well in sales, 5, 428 Model X crossovers have been sold.
