Tesla Model Y became the second best-selling car in Germany in February. Strong sales in the second month of the quarter were made possible by Giga Berlin, which can manufacture and deliver vehicles to customers quickly.
Tesla continues to show strong sales figures in Germany, made possible by the production of Model Y at Giga Berlin, which is located right in the country. In past years, local customers had to wait longer for their vehicles to be delivered as they were produced at Giga Shanghai in China. This was especially noticeable at the beginning of each year. The bulk of sales usually come in the third month of each quarter. Now that the German factory is running, the situation has changed. Tesla sold 3,708 Model Ys in January and boosted that figure even more in February.
There were 206,210 vehicles registered in Germany in February, according to the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA). Tesla registered 6,442 Model Ys which was an excellent result. Although the car was surpassed by WV Golf with 7,655 sales, it took a solid second place on the German market's top-selling car list in February. At this point, the clear picture is that Model Y has been a consistent name in the top-selling cars in the country for months now, displacing the domestic cars that have long dominated there.
Tesla Model Y is on track to become the best-selling car in the world, which is expected to happen in 2023. Production ramp-up at Giga Berlin and Giga Texas is proceeding at a fairly rapid pace, and if there are no unforeseen circumstances, then expectations will be filled.
