Tesla continues its triumphant charge ahead, picking up one victory after another. In August, Tesla became the top-selling car brand in Taiwan as Model 3 was crowned the top-selling passenger car.
According to Tesla China's official Twitter account, the Californian company's electric vehicles became the best-selling cars in Taiwan, with 817 units sold in August. Model 3 became the best-selling model with 685 units registered. Also, according to the report, in August, Tesla took an extremely impressive 97.4% of Taiwan's new electric vehicle sales.
Tesla China also announced this week that the company registered 912 vehicles sold in August in Hong Kong, making it the most popular car brand there. At the same time, the Model 3 also became the best-selling passenger car in the region, surpassing both gasoline and electric cars from all other manufacturers — a supreme achievement.

Despite the fact that historically, August is not especially active for Tesla in terms of sales, data indicate that the company is experiencing robust growth. The popularity of the company's cars continues to grow along with the expansion of production facilities. Sales of passenger cars in China increased by 8.8% y-o-y in August; wholesale sales of new-energy vehicles exceeded 100,000 units, up 43.7% on a yearly basis, per data from the China Passenger Car Association.
In August, Giga Shanghai was able to produce 12,714 Model 3, and sell 11,811 units, according to the CPCA. China is the world's largest automotive market—as well as the largest EV market—far ahead of the US and some European countries. It’s exciting to see that Tesla is leading the charge.
