Now, 2020 has rolled around and a bunch more automakers have decided to ditch monthly sales reporting. Nissan (& Infiniti), Jaguar Land Rover, and Volkswagen (including Audi, Porsche, etc.) announced the change with press releases. Others didn't seem to announce it but just stopped publishing the monthly numbers (Mercedes, BMW, and Toyota)

The Tesla Model 3 continued to hog the throne on top of the US premium-class car market at the end of 2019. For the full year, the Model 3 accounted for 23% of small and midsize luxury car sales. In other words, nearly 1 out of every 4 small or midsize luxury cars sold in 2019 was a Tesla Model

The US auto industry took a bit of a whack in 2019. Excluding Tesla, auto sales were down by 177,839 units in 2019 compared to 2018. That said, only 13 auto brands saw their sales drop, while 18 saw their sales rise

The Tesla Model 3 continues to dominate the US premium-class car market. In fact, it has dominated this market to such an extent that it has more sales in 2019 than all of BMW's small & midsize models combined, all of Mercedes-Benz's small & midsized models combined, all of Audi's small & midsized models combined, all of Lexus's small & midsized models combined, etc

I may need to cancel my fun, popular, and extremely time consuming monthly reports for US auto sales. One by one, US automakers have stopped publishing monthly sales data. At this point, there are almost as many brands not reporting sales as there are reporting them

I was so glad to see this Motor Trend comparison of the top 3 sport sedans you can buy for around $50,000, and to see that it included the Tesla Model 3, I'm tired of reading reviews comparing the Model 3 to other electric cars. Everyone knows where it stands compared to other electric cars (it beats them for the most part, unless you have special requirements, like you need an SUV), but as well as Tesla has sold car over the last year, there are still places where people have no idea about Tesla or any electric car

This may have been the longest I've ever taken to create a monthly US sales report, and it may have also been the most difficult. We had a strong sense of how Tesla Model 3 production and deliveries were ramping up through the 3rd quarter, but due to the intense push to get Model 3s out the door and into customers' hands by the end of the quarter, it has been hard to estimate output in subsequent weeks — much of October

Tesla Model 3 sales growth this year has been astounding, putting to bed any sensible skepticism about Tesla's ability to produce a high number of high-quality cars that consumers adore

Tesla increased its deliveries by more than 100% in the third quarter compared to the second quarter, its previous best quarter in history. In 6 years, its Q3 sales jumped from 321 to 83,500.
Its sales come at the expense of cars all over the map. However, the classes it is most directly competing in are the relevant luxury classes

As Tesla Model 3 production and sales have grown, I've felt more and more inspired to compare the car's scorecard against that of other models. I intended to update my "Small & Midsize Luxury Car Sales" charts and report this weekend, but then got a bit carried away. As a result, below are 7 sales charts regarding the Tesla Model 3 and some of its wide ranging "competition," which includes not only small and midsize luxury cars but also some of the most popular, mass-market cars in the United States

Regular readers of CleanTechnica and the other myriad sites that make up the Important Media network will (hopefully) recognise the name Joshua S Hill (i.e., me). I’ve been writing for Important (and its predecessor Green Options) Media since September of 2007 (and no, I’m not linking to my first article – it’s probably atrocious). Writing about and covering the world of global warming and clean technology has been a big part of my life – nearly a third, to be precise. I am not only passionate about clean technology for the sake of technological innovation, but also because I believe our planet is one of the greatest gifts humanity has ever received

The annual Consumer Reports Owner Satisfaction survey is out and Tesla tops the list for the second time in as many years followed closely by Porsche and Genesis.

Have you ever wondered why you haven't seen a glitzy TV commercial for Tesla's new Model 3? According to Advertising Age, "Tesla still doesn't need [any] paid advertising to make sales." E.J. Schultz reports that, "even as the Model 3 goes on sale for anticipated delivery starting in the fourth quarter, word-of-mouth and free media coverage seems to be enough to fuel demand for the foreseeable future."
