Tesla Crushes Porsche & Jaguar Worldwide

October 12th, 2018 by  


Tesla is scoring too many blowout sales milestones. It needs to cool it.

Before jumping into the latest number-crunching fun, here’s a quick recap of some notable sales milestones Tesla just achieved in case you missed them:

Phew.

But that’s just the beginning.

I reported at the end of July that Tesla production seemed to be passing Jaguar production (worldwide), and I reported earlier in July that Tesla may overtake Porsche (worldwide).

I just calculated the 3rd quarter totals for these companies* and Tesla beat both Jaguar and Porsche. In fact, despite the other brands seeing modest growth, Tesla crushed them.

Auto Brand Q3 2018
Tesla 83,500
Jaguar 41,940
Porsche 65,964

Naturally, the most important thing is that every single Tesla sale is an electric car sale, which means less pollution, less global warming, and less noise.

Tesla’s sales growth is driven by the Model 3, which is somehow competing with cars half or a third of its price for the top selling car title in the United States. It seems that Tesla just produced the 100,000th Model 3 in the past week or so. Both Bloomberg’s production tracker and Teslike’s production tracker went passed the 100,000 car milestone this week. How long till the next 100,000 Model 3s are out the door and in customers’ hands?

*Not difficult calculations, but neither Jaguar nor Porsche releases Q3 totals, so three Jaguar press releases and two Porsche press releases were required to uncover the numbers.
