U.S. battery electric car market share by manufacturer - 2019

Tesla dominated battery electric vehicle sales in the United States in 2019 with a market share of almost 80 percent. The company sold an estimated 190,000 battery electric vehicles in that year, helped by its line-up of electric vehicles including the Model 3, Model X, and Model S.

Miles ahead of the competition

Tesla employs close to 49,000 people worldwide, with around 10,000 of those based at its main production factory in California. The number of Tesla vehicles produced worldwide started to increase significantly when mass production of the Model 3 was scaled up during 2018. In the same year, the company sold approximately 190,000 battery electric vehicles in the United States, accounting for around 80 percent of all battery electric vehicles sold in the country.

What range do electric cars have?

Two reasons why drivers will not consider buying an electric vehicle are range and charge; however, new battery technology is helping to change those opinions. Tesla vehicles dominate the list of electric vehicles with the greatest battery range in the United States, with some models being able to travel further than 300 miles on a single charge. Tesla’s network of superchargers also provides access to the most electric vehicle fast-charging outlets in the United States, making the process of recharging the battery easier and quicker.
