Now there is absolutely no doubt the incredible success of the all-electric Tesla Model 3 sedan in the US market. Electric car was sold in the amount of 145,864 units.

According to reports from leading US analytic companies, the Tesla Model 3 electric sedan was not only the best-selling electric car for last year, it was able to take a leading position in the entire US car market in the premium car segment. The company has managed to make a quality product, which rather easily outdid its closest competitors.

In addition, Tesla itself reported this in its recent sales report. Interestingly, Tesla was so confident in the Model 3 that it reported this information even before most other brands published their sales data in the United States.

In addition, Tesla does not even fully disclose its sales data. Around the world, 145,846 copies of Model 3 electric sedan were sold in 2018. As before, the main market for an American company is the USA.


So, the popularity of electric vehicles, and in particular Tesla, is beginning to gain not sickly momentum.

Tesla Model 3 is built on a completely new platform. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in an electric car takes 5.1 seconds. Power reserve is 350 km (in expensive versions of 500 km). The model is equipped with an “autopilot”.

For comparison, at the end of 2018, the Japanese Lexus RX crossover was sold in the US in an edition of 111,641 copies.
