Transportation in the United States accounts for 28% of greenhouse gas emissions, underlining the extreme importance of transitioning to electric vehicles. In recent years, electric vehicles (EVs) have become more and more popular, and Tesla cars are leading the charge. Over the past three years, Tesla Model 3, S, and X have become the most popular electric vehicles in the US.

BuyAutoInsurance.com conducted a study, according to which it identified the 10 most popular electric vehicles sold in the US over the past three years, among which Tesla's cars stand out. Tesla Model 3, S, and X took the top three places in the rankings, having sold the most electric vehicles and having the largest share of the US market.

Tesla Model 3 became the best-selling electric vehicle in the country, selling 296,392 in three years and gaining an unprecedented 50.6% market share. The electric car combines an excellent price and quality, guaranteeing its owners the highest level of safety.

Tesla Model S became the second most popular electric vehicle in the US in the past three years, selling 67,335 units and taking 11.5% of the market share. However, its popularity will continue to grow as the company recently launched its refreshed models with the addition of the Plaid and Plaid + variants, which significantly increased consumer interest in Model S.

Tesla Model X closes out the top three, registering 67,225 units over the past three years, and taking 11.5% of the market share, just slightly behind Model S. With the release of a refreshed model in 2021 and the addition of a Plaid version, the model could experience another surge in interest.

The fourth best-selling EV was the Chevy Bolt, which sold 57,629 units and took 10% of the market share, which is also a fairly high indicator. It is followed by the Nissan Leaf with 38,310 units sold that has a 7% market share. The top 10 also includes:

# 6 - BMW i3
Total sold in 3 years: 17,247
Market share over 3 years: 3%

# 7 - VW e-Golf.
Total sold in 3 years: 9,751
Market share over 3 years: 2%

# 8 - Fiat 500E.
Total sold in 3 years: 6,218
Market share over 3 years: 1%

# 9 - Audi e-tron.
Total sold in 3 years: 5,369
Market share over 3 years: 1%

# 10 - Kia Soul EV.
Total sold in 3 years: 3405
Market share over 3 years: 1%



The study found Tesla to be the market leader and catalyst for the popularization of electric vehicles in the US, although it's fair to say that this is the case around the world. While companies with many years of history have only one model in this ranking, Tesla has three models and they have taken the leading positions. Thus, over the past three years, Tesla has accounted for 73.6% of the US electric vehicle market share, which is an extremely striking indicator that underlines the importance of the Californian manufacturer for the US car market. It is also true that Tesla is the best EV company in the world.
