Tesla Model 3 may enter the top 20 best-selling cars (all types) in Australia in 2021 as sales continue to gain momentum. The fourth ship with vehicles will deliver over 1,000 Model 3s to complete Q2 with a staggering sales count at about 4,000 units.
Tesla Model 3 is on track to enter the top 20 best-selling cars in Australia in 2021, according to The Driven. The fourth ship in Q2 with over 1,000 Model 3s on board arrived at Kembla on Friday. As noted by the Tesla ship tracker @Vedaprime/Twitter, the last ship in Q2 will increase the number of Model 3s shipped to Australia in 2021 to 4,200. Thus, this is already 40% more than all of 2020, when about 3,000 vehicles were sold.

It should be kept in mind that most of the Model 3s on this ship will probably be delivered in Q3. However, around 4,000 Model 3s are expected to be registered in Australia by the end of June and, thanks to the Californian manufacturer, the share of electric vehicles will grow to a staggering 2% in 2021.
Thus, by the end of 2021, about 10,000 more Model 3s may appear on Australian roads, if not more, as Tesla sales increase significantly in Q3 and Q4. This means Model 3 could be on par with sales of the Kia Seltos, Kia Sportage, Volkswagen Golf, and Honda CR-V in 2020. It will also likely place the Model 3 in the top 20 best-selling vehicles in Australia in 2021, which shows the worldwide trend towards electric vehicles.
