Tesla Model 3 was once again the best-selling EV in Spain in Q2 2021 with nearly 13% market share. According to the data collected, Model 3 also became the best-selling EV in 2021.
Spain has never been one of the largest markets in Europe for Tesla. Traditionally, Renault and Peugeot, which are made in France, have been the best-selling EVs there. However, this trend, as in France, is beginning to change. In Q2 2021, Tesla Model 3 again became the best-selling EV in Spain, following its last victory in Q1, according to EU-EVs.
Tesla sold 824 Model 3s last quarter, making it the absolute leader in sales. Thus, by selling only one car model, Tesla was able to take 12.9% of the market share. It should be noted that this made the manufacturer the leader in the EV market. Renault, its closest competitor—selling six different EV models—was able to occupy only 10.6% of the market share.
The second most popular EV model in Spain was Kia Niro, by a wide margin from Model 3. The South Korean manufacturer was able to register only 332 vehicles in Q2, which is 2.5 times less than the Californian manufacturer. This situation perfectly demonstrates the shift in interest towards Tesla, as the company offers excellent, reliable cars at a relatively low price.
In third place, Seat Mii, with 311 registrations for the quarter, is marginally behind Kia Niro. Immediately behind it is VW ID.4 with 310 sales, followed by Renault Zoe with 305 registrations. In general, they all enjoy approximately the same level of interest, and only Tesla Model 3 stands out significantly in the entire EV market.
