The Tesla Model 3 became the best-selling electric car in Luxembourg in May 2020.
Luxembourg is a small European country with a population of only about 630,000. However, this did not prevent the Model 3 from becoming the best-selling electric vehicle in the country.
According to EV Sales, currently 1,136 PEVs are registered in the country, which is 57% more compared to the same period last year, while the share of plug-ins is now a record 7% (3.1% of which BEV), whereas in the past month share reached a record 8.2%. Under such conditions, there is every reason to believe that their share may reach 10% by the end of 2020.
Tesla has already received three best seller awards in Luxembourg. In 2016 and 2017, Model S received the awards, and in 2019 it was Model 3. In May, Tesla again leads the way with Model 3. Over the past five months of 2020, Tesla sold more than twice as many Models 3s as its closest competitor Renault Zoe.
Most of the presented models belong to the highest class of the automobile echelon, and only #2 Renault Zoe and #4 VW e-Golf represent a cheaper segment.
Regarding the manufacturer’s ranking, Tesla is the absolute leader with a 16% share, while BMW is #2 with 13%, followed by #3 Volvo (10%) and #4 Mercedes (9%), Porsche and Volkswagen, both with 7% are still far from the podium race.
