Top-selling electric cars in America 2020
It’s no surprise that Tesla is still the top dominant on the American electric vehicle market. According to Clean Technica published data, the top-selling electric cars in America in the first half of 2020 starts with Tesla’s Model 3 having close to five times as many sales as the Chevy Bolt and 13 times as many sales as the Nissan LEAF. Without a question tesla has dominance over the competition is notably highlighted by the fact that it sold 152 times as many units as BMW’s i3 within 6 months (January to June) with the German automaker’s electric aspirations of the U.S. market really struggling in 2020.
Despite the Tesla Model 3‘s domination at the top of the EV popularity society, its sales figures have been notably lower if we compare it to the first half of 2019 when they were in the region of 69,000. Actually, sales have now been torn between the Model 3 and the Model Y, a compact crossover based on the former. Tesla’s business has also had their fair share from the coronavirus pandemic and economic shutdown, as have most manufacturers. For instance, Clean Technica shown that the Nissan LEAF saw its sales pretty much break down in half, just two units off a precise 50% drop. Many companies are passing the storm, looking at their positive results posts, nevertheless, with Audi’s e-Tron adding one thousand units in the first six months of the year.
Clean Technica explained that its analysis should not be viewed as a comprehensive electric vehicle sales report, because almost all manufacturers do not publish figures and there is no such a thing as national registration data to access the info we want. For example, the Tesla figures are not accurate as the company does not separate U.S. sales data from worldwide sales data. But, Clean Technica was able to formulate relatively precise estimations for the U.S. market due to many figures published in EVvolumes.com database.
