Tesla = 77.3% Of Worldwide Google Searches For Electric Vehicles

Tesla’s Model 3 is on the minds of many people around the world. From Cote d’Ivoire to El Salvador to the US and Canada, and then all the way to Australia and China, the data show that many people are researching the Model 3.

Tesla’s Model 3 is on the minds of many people around the world. From Cote d’Ivoire to El Salvador to the US and Canada, and then all the way to Australia and China, the data show that many people are researching the Model 3.

In a recent study provided by Compare The Market, the Tesla Model 3 was revealed to be the most searched for electric car. Vincent has a short and sweet tweet about it:

Yes, Tesla’s Model 3 is the most searched for electric car in over half of the 136 countries that were included in the study — USA, Canada, Australia, most of Europe, parts of South America, China, India, and many more countries totaling up to 54.7% of the countries included in the study.

Considering the fact that Tesla has run $0 worth of conventional advertising, this is especially huge for the company. Advertising is pretty much just word of mouth from happy owners. Imagine starting your own business, paying $0 for ads, and having the #1 searched car in your market in 54% of 136 countries.

Other models of Tesla, like the S and the X, are popular, too. If you add up the total amount from the Model S. 3, and X, you can see that Tesla dominates electric car searches across the planet.

Tesla searches make up 77.3% of electric car Googling.

How The Data Was Compiled

Compare The Market is the third-largest price comparison website in the UK. It helps individuals research companies in industries such as insurance, electricity/energy, and mobile/broadband.

For this particular study, they used Google search data to find the most popular search term for each of the vehicles, and then compared their popularity in 136 countries.

Although this study compared many models — such as the Audi e-tron, Lucid Air, and other models that only use a battery to power the vehicle — only 6 models were the most searched for in at least one country, according to the data.

Those six were the Tesla Model 3, Tesla Model S, Tesla Model X, Nissan Leaf, BMW i3, and Renault ZOE.

How Is This Possible For A Company With “No Demand?”

A popular myth among or pushed by Tesla short sellers who advocate for the demise of Tesla is that there is “no more demand” or “not much demand” for Teslas (shortened to “no demand” by Tesla supporters making fun of Tesla critics and short sellers). Some people basically claim that no one else wants a Tesla — people who wanted one bought it — and that Tesla will die because the CEO is an evil overlord. Or something like that. However, the data seems to show otherwise.

The truth is, this world is evolving. We are letting go of older ways of doing things and embracing newer, fresher ways of powering our homes, cars, buses, etc. Tesla is a symbol of a new way to drive. Tesla cuts carbon emissions, harmful pollution, and unnecessary noise and rumbling of gasoline/diesel cars. (Note: Fart Mode doesn’t count when it comes to actual emissions.)

Celebrities like Jaden Smith, Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Stephen Colbert have them, and millions of people think and probably talk about Tesla every day. Everyone Googles what excites them. For many, that is Tesla. The data is real.
