Surely you notice a Tesla on the road. In case you are wondering how they are selling.

Here are some quick numbers for 2018:

  • The Model 3 received the best 3 to 5 year resale value estimate from Kelley Blue Book in the luxury car category, midsize car category, and electric vehicle category.
  • Tesla opened up Model 3 orders in Europe and China.
  • The Model S and Model X pricing were modified, and production hours were reduced.
  • Tesla indicated that the Model Y was likely to be built at Gigafactory 1 as well as Gigafactory 3.
  • They also announced layoffs of ~7% of its full-time workforce.
  • Tesla announced that it held 80% of the US electric vehicle market in 2018.
  • The Model 3 was the #1 top selling luxury vehicle in the country and the 11th best-selling car overall.
  • The Model S accounted for more than one third of large luxury car sales in the US in 2018.
  • Tesla sold ~30,000 more vehicles in 2018 than Porsche and ~46,000 more vehicles than Jaguar.
