Tesla Model 3 recognized as the United States’ best-selling luxury car in 2018



The Tesla may still have a number of critics who question the vehicle’s requirement, but the electric sedan has nearly dominated in 2018 nonetheless. By selling a total of 145,846 units within the course of the last year, the Model 3 has established itself as the United States’ bestselling high-end vehicle, significantly outperforming its closest competition.

After the Tesla Model 3, the next in the last year’s luxury vehicle rankings is that the Lexus RX, that sold 111,641 units in 2018.

That’s almost as many cars that the company sold in all previous years combined.

Inasmuch as the Model 3 is currently being recognized as a victory in the US luxury car market, the electric sedan remains to begin its push into international markets. So far, Tesla is putting the foundations for its Model 3’therefore push in two big global markets — Europe and China. The business is reportedly seeking to send 3,000 Model 3 a week to Europe from February. To get ready for the influx of Model 3, Tesla has started rolling out Superchargers which are equipped with both a Type 2 and a CCS plug, that matches with the jack Model 3 which are produced for the region.

Elon Musk has noticed that deliveries of this Model 3 can start as early as March in China. That, however, is but the tip of the iceberg to get your company’s plans for its Model 3 in the country. Earlier this past week, Elon Musk attended the revolutionary event for Gigafactory 3, that is tasked to create affordable versions of the Model 3 and the Model Y to the Chinese market.
