In November, the Tesla brand accounted for 21.2% of sales in the electric vehicle market. But, it is worth noting that 1,008 Model Ys and 99 Model 3s were registered, so the main merit for dominating the Italian market belongs to the compact SUV. At the same time, the joint sales of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Group, with five different models sold in Italy in November, resulted in a market share of 18.6% and second place. The third most significant player was Stellanitis, automaker constituents of which jointly sold 884 units and occupied a 17% market share.
The Tesla factory in Germany continues to increase production, which will help increase sales in Europe. Giga Berlin is expected to reach a production capacity of 5,000 Model Ys per week in late 2022/early 2023. This will help the manufacturer supply more vehicles to Italy and further develop the electric vehicle market.
