The advent of Tesla electric vehicles revolutionized the automotive industry, and the advent of Model 3 only strengthened Tesla’s position around the world, including Australia.

In Australia, as of the end of February, about 17,600 electric vehicles were registered. According to The Driven, Tesla's dominant position in the Australian market continues to grow. 

In the first two months of 2020, approximately 1,000 Model 3, about 20 Model S, and 30 Model X were shipped to Australia. The numbers provided by Tesla's ship tracking sources indicate that a total of 1,167 vehicles were sent by the automaker.

These figures show that demand for Model 3 in Australia continues to remain high despite the fact that almost all initial orders have already been completed. Residents of the country continue to actively buy this model.

We all know that Tesla doesn't provide data on the number of sales separately by country, but VFACTS collects data for all cars on behalf of the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industry (FCAI) and provides them in its report.

According to these reports, about 1,300 new electric vehicles were sold in Australia from the beginning of the year until end of the February. Tesla Model 3 has become the best-selling car. After it, the most popular models were the Hyundai Kona Electric and all-electric Hyundai Ioniq.

Based on the data provided, it can see that Tesla has 80% of sales among all electric vehicles sold in 2020.

The Australian government doesn't support the purchase of electric vehicles, so there are no incentives to encourage purchases in the country. Despite this, the demand for electric cars in the country is growing. And, as we see, Tesla has become a real catalyst for this growth.

Considering the improvements presented at Battery Day, the cost of producing Tesla batteries will be about $68/kWh. However, battery technology is constantly evolving, which may mean that at the moment, the cost of producing Tesla batteries may already be lower than presented by Cairn Energy. Considering this, we can safely assume that in 2-3 years, the cost could be significantly lower than 70$/kWh.
