Tesla Model 3 Was The Top Selling Model In Europe

Passenger car sales in Europe (26 European markets, monitored by JATO Dynamics) once again declined due to the chip shortage. The number of registrations amounted to 964,800 (down 25% year-over-year).

Because of a few weak months, the year-to-date number is now just 7% above the level of 2020.

Plug-ins, with 221,500 new registrations (up 44% year-over-year), are selling better and better, taking some 23% of the total market in September, compared to just 12% a year ago and 5% in 2019.

So far this year, about 1.5 million plug-ins were sold in Europe. On the other hand, diesel is fading.

Top 10 best-selling models with Tesla as #1

Thanks to a high number of deliveries in the last month of the quarter, Tesla has achieved unprecedented results in Europe.

The Tesla Model 3 has become not only the best-selling electric car, but the best-selling car overall for the month of September 2021 with about 24,512 registrations and 2.6% market share.

Not only that, for the first time a model manufactured outside of Europe is the best-selling car, which sounds like another warning signal for the local automotive industry.
