Tesla Model 3 = 3rd Best Selling Vehicle In The Netherlands In July

Led by the Tesla Model 3, the Dutch plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market grew 73% in July, with 2,372 plug-in registrations, which translated into a PEV share of 7%. For January through July, PEV share was at 8.6%, well above the 6% of

Tesla Model 3 = 67% of US Electric Vehicle Sales in 2nd Quarter

I prefer comparing the Tesla Model 3 to its gasoline competitors, but it’s also logical to compare the Model 3 to other electric vehicles. In the old days, these were simply called EV sales reports, but the US electric vehicle market is so unbalanced at the moment that it’s hard to ignore the elephant in the room — there’s the Model 3, and there’s everything else

Jaguar Dealer Claims I-PACE Can Charge At Tesla Superchargers — Whoops

Legacy automakers have had some documented issues selling electric cars. In 2017, Sierra Club issued a report on EV shopping and found that Tesla stores provided a far more positive experience compared to Big Auto’s franchise dealerships. In 2018, another report in Nature found that “dismissive and deceptive car dealerships create barriers to electric vehicle adoption.”

Record Month For Tesla In Portugal — June EV Sales Report

Plug-in vehicle (PEV) sales are as hot as a summer afternoon in Lisbon, with 1,263 plug-ins being registered in June. That’s a 5% PEV share of the overall auto market and up 75% year over year (YoY). It’s just 20 units behind the all-time record (1,283 units), which was registered last March

Tesla Shines In June, But Zoe Holds Onto #1 In 2019 In Germany — EV Sales Report

The German plug-in vehicle (PEV) market continued on the right track in June, having registered 8,631 units. Fully electric vehicles (BEVs) were up strong, +117% year over year (YoY), compensating for the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) drop of –9%, and all-electrics now represent two-thirds of plug-in registrations. The PEV share of the overall auto market was 2.7% in May, with BEVs alone hitting 1.8%. That pushed the 2019 plug-in share slightly up, to 2.6% (1.7% BEV)

Germany’s Electric Vehicle Competition Could Accelerate Tesla’s Growth

Tesla naysayers often tout electric cars from legacy automakers as an imminent threat to the American automaker. However, “According to Berenberg Bank, this could benefit the upstart American company.”

Jaguar I-PACE, Audi e-tron, Mercedes EQC — Electric Autobahn Range Disasters

The entrance of the Model S in Germany was considered a failure about 5 years ago. Autos of this class were expected to be “Autobahn capable,” which in Germany translates to driving for 3 hours at 130 mph. Of course, nobody ever does it, beside car magazine journalists testing their (and the cars’) endurance while driving in the middle of the night. In day time there is far too much traffic to do stupid things like that
