According to foreign media, Beijing time reported on the 6th,Tesla Model 3 is the only electric car in the United States to call it a "big sale" in 2019, crushing all competitors, including the company's other models. Tesla Model 3 sold nearly 160,000 vehicles in the U.S. last year, according to the electric vehicle website InsideEVs.com. While other automakers have invested billions in new electric models, there is still a long way to go to catch up with Tesla. NEW YORK (AP)- Tesla Model 3, the only electric car in the United States to call it a "big sale" in 2019, crushed all its competitors, including the company's other models, foreign media reported.
GM's Chevrolet Bolt and Nissan Leaf's 2019 sales fell 8.9 percent and 16 percent respectively.
What are the expensive European models doing to challenge Tesla? Porsche has just started selling the much touted taycan and delivered its first 130 new cars in December. Audi e-tron sold 746 vehicles in December last year, only 5369 in the whole year. Jaguar Land Rover is even further behind, with only 2594 i-pace SUVs sold.
"Perhaps Tesla's best asset is its brand," RBC Capital Markets analyst Joe Spak wrote in a note Friday.
