Tesla Model 3 = #1 Electric Car In Europe — #CleanTechnica Electric Car Sales Report

March 31st, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

The big news in February’s top positions was of course the Tesla Model 3 landing with a bang, and jumping right up to the leadership position, but unlike what has happened (and is happening) in the USA, the blackhole effect of the Tesla Model 3 is not absorbing sales from other BEVs (well, maybe the Model S is the exception). Instead, it appears the Model 3 is pulling customers directly from competing PHEVs and gas/diesel models

45% of Current Electric Car Drivers Plan to Buy a Tesla Next — #CleanTechnica Report

November 11th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan
