Tesla’s dominance over Australia’s EV industry appears to be growing, with recent reports indicating that the Silicon Valley-based EV maker still sells more than twice as many cars as any of its rivals. combined. That’s pretty impressive for Tesla, given that the EV segment is now increasingly crowded with entries from other automakers.
As stated in a report by the conduit, Tesla has shipped more than 10,000 cars to Australia since 2014. And although the electric car maker does not release local sales figures, data shared to the publication by its sources indicates that Tesla has outperformed its competitors. by a factor of two to one. .
Of those 10,000 vehicles, 30% were shipped in 2020. And of that group, numbering 2,949, 90% were Model 3. That number might seem trivial given Tesla’s impressive sales in places like China. and the United States, but it should be noted that this year so far the Australian market has sold less than 5,000 electric vehicles in total.
With those numbers in mind, the Model 3 now accounts for just over half of all vehicles Tesla has shipped to Australia since 2014. This shows, aside from the wider adoption of EVs overall, the impact of model 3 on the market. And given the performance of the all-electric sedan, the chances of the Model Y finding a solid footing in Australia seem quite probable.
Tesla is currently aiming to meet its most ambitious goal to date by delivering half a million vehicles in one year despite the presence of a pandemic. Australia’s sales might just be a drop in the bucket in that number, but it’s still a milestone of sorts as it shows that in the EV business, Tesla is still at the top of the game. the battery.
