Tesla sales in the UK rose by more than 1,400% in April. Model Y became the 7th best-selling car in the country through the first four month of 2023.
In April 2023, Tesla showed a significant increase in new car registrations in the UK. They are up 1,436% year-over-year to 1,813 units, according to SMMT data. In April 2022, the manufacturer registered 118 vehicles. Last year, Giga Shanghai—which supplies vehicles for the European market—was closed due to China's COVID-19 measures. Improved sales in the UK in 2023 allowed the company to increase Tesla's market share from 0.10% to 1.36%.
Tesla Model Y became the 7th best-selling car in the UK through the first four months of 2023. 11,503 units were sold during this period. Electric vehicle sales continue to grow, creating competition for internal combustion engine vehicles.
It is worth noting that the cost of Tesla Model Y is much higher than that of competitors, so its achievement is especially noteworthy. Tesla expects its electric compact SUV to become the best-selling car in the world, and it looks like it has every chance to succeed.
