According to foreign media reports, with the increase in production, Tesla has long dominated the U.S. electric car market, the overall share of the U.S. auto market is also increasing, the data shows that they are the fastest growing U.S. auto market share manufacturers in the first quarter of this year.
Tesla sold 180,993 electric vehicles in the U.S. market in the first quarter, up 39.5 percent year-over-year and 37.6 percent year-over-year, according to the agency.
In terms of sales, Tesla is the 8th highest seller in the U.S. market so far in the first quarter, with sales above them being General Motors, Ford, Toyota, Hyundai, Strandis, Honda and Nissan-Mitsubishi, with the highest sales of 587,020 units for GM.
Those with lower sales than Tesla include many big-name automakers such as Volkswagen, BMW and Daimler, with Volkswagen having sold 143,185 units, BMW 82,651 units and Daimler 79,535 units.
Although Tesla’s sales in the U.S. market increased significantly year-over-year in the first quarter, their year-over-year sales growth was not as high as that of Rivian and Lucid, two electric car makers whose sales increased 563.8% year-over-year and 192.9% year-over-year, although they have a significant sales gap with Tesla, with Rivian selling 8,145 units and Lucid selling 1,344 units in the first quarter. Lucid sold 1,344 units.
In terms of market share, Tesla, whose sales were up more than 30 percent year-over-year, was the fastest-growing U.S. auto market share maker in the first quarter, with their share rising to 5.1 percent in the first quarter from 3.8 percent a year earlier.
With the continued increase in production at the Texas Superplant, which went into operation last year, and the further increase in capacity at the Fremont, California plant, Tesla’s ability to supply the U.S. market will be further enhanced, and sales and share in the U.S. auto market are expected to continue to increase.
