Tesla Dominates Electric Car Sales in the United States
Having more than doubled its vehicle production in 2018, Tesla single-handedly propelled electric vehicle sales in the United States to new heights last year. According to industry blog InsideEVs, the company accounted for more than 50 percent of electric car sales in the U.S. over the past 12 months, as the Model 3 grew into its envisaged role as the first mass-market Tesla.
Tesla reportedly sold almost 140,000 units of the Model 3, outselling the second most popular electric car, the hybrid Toyota Prius Prime, 5 to 1. Tesla’s Model X and Model S were the third and fourth most popular electric models, capping what was a turbulent but successful year for the company led by its eccentric and at times controversial founder Elon Musk.
