Tesla Model 3 became the second best-selling car in Europe in June 2021. This achievement underlines a significant shift in consumer interest towards electric vehicles, which is largely due to Tesla.
20-30 years ago, electric cars were perceived as something insignificant. At the time, only a few could see more than a golf cart in them and appreciate their true potential. Tesla and its CEO Elon Musk were among the first to bet on electric vehicles as the best type of vehicle that can have a significant impact on reducing CO2 levels in the atmosphere. By developing and starting to mass-produce high-tech electric vehicles that have enough range to compete with gasoline cars, Tesla made them attractive to many people. Now, 18 years after Tesla's foundation, its cars are becoming one of the most popular in the world and will soon surpass their ICE counterparts.
Tesla has repeatedly deserved increased attention since its Model 3 was among the top-selling cars in various countries, adequately competing with cars with internal combustion engines. Europe has become an EV-friendly market and June sales results confirm this. In this month, Tesla Model 3 became the second best-selling car in Europe despite its relatively high cost, behind only the VW Golf.
According to Jato Dynamics analysis, based on sales results, VW Golf ranked first among new registrations last month with 27,247 vehicles sold. Tesla has registered an impressive 25,697 Model 3 units, most of which were imported from Giga Shanghai. These sales results show how quickly the electric car gained its popularity, and that consumers increasingly prefer it over its gasoline-powered counterparts. The demand for Tesla cars is growing steadily, and after the start of production of Model Y at Giga Berlin, the impact will be even more pronounced.
