Tesla continues its offensive in Australia, reaching new supply records. In 2021, the company delivered over 10,000 Model 3s, which roughly corresponds to all of Tesla's total vehicle shipments in the period from 2014-2020. These numbers will make Model 3 one of the best-selling vehicles in the Australian market in 2021.
Tesla will end 2021 as the winner as shipments of its Model 3 increased significantly this year. According to The Driven, Model 3 is already firmly positioned as the number one seller of electric vehicles in Australia and is well-positioned to reach the fourth best-selling passenger car, overtaking the Toyota Camry, MG’s MG3, and Mazda’s Mazda 3 by the end of the year.
On November 12, the last batch in 2021 of Tesla vehicles arrived in Australia. According to Tesla, Australian Ship/Delivery tracker VedaPrime, the number has now surpassed 10,000 this year alone. This also means that as many vehicles were delivered in 2021 as between 2014 and 2020.
Over 10000 #Tesla Model 3 have now arrived in Australia this year.— VedaPrime (@VedaPrime) November 11, 2021
Between 2014-2020 10000 arrived across the entire period.
Australia is awake. 10 years behind the US/Europe but we are awake now.
Australia has shown a significant increase in interest in Tesla cars and this is only taking into account the supply of Model 3. It should be kept in mind that in 2021 no Model S or Model X were delivered to Australia. Deliveries of Model Y have not started there either, although it is expected that this model will be in very high demand.
While at the moment it looks like all Tesla cars that will be delivered in 2021 have already been delivered to Australia, The Driven reports that there may be additional deliveries by the end of the year. Ultimately, this could further improve Tesla's position in the country's automotive market.
