Tesla Is Dominating 70% Of The New EVs’ Sales In Australia

Australia’s still catching up to the rest of the world when it comes to EV purchase incentives. But there are positive shifts. The federal Coalition has promised to release its EV strategy in 2020.

2019 for Australia was the year when the transition to electric cars began to take shape in the country. Official data for calendar 2019 released by the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI) show us that sales of gasoline and diesel cars for the year decreased by 7.8% compared with the previous year to the lowest level since 2011. The passenger car market was hit especially hard, with a 16.5% drop. Even sales of SUVs, currently the most popular market segment, fell 2.4%.

At the same time, data for 2019 claims that the electric and hybrid markets show significant sales growth. According to The Driven, official data and analyst estimates show that in 2019, sales of new clean electric cars in Australia reached just over 5,000 cars, or about 0.5% of the total new car market.

Tesla accounted for approximately 70% of these sales. Unfortunately, the actual figures are difficult to obtain because Tesla doesn't publish sales data by country, and official data on electric cars in Australia are incomplete.

Of these 70%, Model 3 accounted for about 90% of Tesla's annual sales, although the first deliveries of this model occurred only at the end of August. Model 3 even captured a major share of the passenger car market, which cost more than $ 60,000, bypassing BMW 3 (3135 sales) and taking second place after the Mercedes Benz C-Class (6798 sales).

Tesla is becoming the leader in sales among EV in many countries around the world. The company is changing the worldview of people, forcing us to think about a clean future and the climatic situation on our planet. First of all, thanks to Tesla, now in the world there is a revolution of electric cars.
