Tesla Model 3 has become the most popular electric car in the worldOctober 9, 2020
Uswitch experts named the best-selling electric vehicles by country: Tesla Model 3 dominates the ranking.
In 2019, global electric vehicle sales reached 2.1 million. These figures are expected to rise sharply again by the end of 2020. This is the strongest year so far, but the COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly had an impact on global sales. Fortunately, things are not so bad for electric vehicles.
Having analyzed the world car market, Uswitch experts found out which all-electric models are the most popular in different countries of the world. Tesla topped the list in 21 of the 60 countries analyzed. Tesla Model 3 has the highest sales worldwide, with a total of 19 countries having purchased this top model. It also makes the United States a leader in the global automotive industry as a whole.
Uswitch highlighted several other all-electric vehicles in their study that performed well, including the Nissan LEAF, Renault ZOE, BAIC EC Series and Volkswagen e-Golf. So the Model 3 sells best in 19 countries, with LEAF following in 9 countries. Both the Zoe and EC Series sell best in 6 countries, and the e-Golf in three. The list also includes the Audi e-tron, BMW i3 and Skoda Citygo EV models, each of which was preferred in two countries.
“The study shows that the Tesla Model 3 dominates the market in 19 countries – this may be due to the fact that it is the cheapest Tesla available on the market, equipped with an autopilot system. It is also good to see other manufacturers such as Renault and Nissan also succeed in the electric vehicle market in many countries, ”said Sarah Brumfield, energy expert for Uswitch.
Brumfield added that perhaps as people start looking for more energy efficient cars again, they will realize the benefits of switching to electricity. This could encourage more carmakers to promote electric vehicles and eventually enter the African market. Moreover, owning an electric car is often much cheaper than a petrol one.
