Tesla Model 3 was officially the best-selling electric car in the US in 2018 Q1
Tesla has recently confirmed its production and delivery data for the first quarter for current year. The data suggests that Tesla Model 3 has now officially become the best-selling electric car in the US. Tesla Model 3 has high demand among customers and the electric carmaker has strong list of pending orders for Model 3.
According to the figures confirmed by Tesla Motors, the company delivered 8,180 units of its Model 3electric vehicles during the January-March 2018 quarter.
Despite the fact that Tesla does not break down its delivery results quarter-wise, it can still be assumed that all the mentioned Model 3 deliveries took place in the US because the vehicle is presently available only in the U.S. market.
In comparison to Tesla’s 8,180 Model 3 deliveries in the 2018 first quarter in the US, the deliveries of the second best-selling all-electric car in the country General Motors’ Chevy Bolt EV were nearly 50% less. In specific figures, the Chevy Bolt EV deliveries in the US for the 2018 first quarter stood at 3,375 units.
With Tesla Model 3 emerging as the best-selling all-electric car in the US, followed by the Chevy Bolt EV, it is being assumed that the Tesla Model S and the Tesla Model X are seemingly placed at the third and fourth place in terms of US sales in the 2018 first quarter. Based on those projections, three of Tesla’s electric vehicles now rank among the top 4 best-selling electric cars in the US.
