Tesla Model 3 was again the best-selling car in Europe. In December 2021, Elon Musk’s electric sedan beat all other cars in terms of registrations in the Old Continent. We are not talking about the electricity segment but the entire market. The Tesla Model 3 (27,358) outperformed the Peugeot 208 (20,186) and the Renault Clio (18,397) by no means.
A really important result that he had already achieved in September 2021 and which was certainly favored by the fact that the American car manufacturer has significantly pushed deliveries in the latter part of 2021work that allowed us to achieve a new record in the last quarter of 2021 which we have already spoken extensively about in the past.
This new important result was certified by Jato Dynamics who shared the data of the European car market for the last month of 2021 which was very difficult for the automotive sector as we have seen recently. As Jato Dynamics points out, Tesla has emerged as one of the few brands able to improve its position in the market, with 35,230 new registrations in December. This is the highest monthly volume for the US producer since its arrival in Europe. As a result, Tesla recorded a record market share of 3.71%, up from 2.23% in December 2020 and from 1.93% in December 2019. Felipe MunozGlobal Analyst at JATO Dynamics commented:
Tesla has weathered the current crisis of the European auto industry better than any other manufacturer. Model 3 led the model rankings while Model Y also secured a spot in the top 40 in December. The success of these two models has allowed Tesla to sell more than established brands including Kia (12 models available), Citroen (10) and Fiat (7).
We have already seen that Tesla Model 3 beat everyone in December, ahead of Peugeot 208, Renault Clio, Dacia Sandero, and Peugeot 2008 in the overall standings. to the electric segment, in the first place, we find, of course, the American electric sedan that precedes the Renault Zoe and the Dacia Spring. Well, the Model Y is in fifth place.
Among the Plug-ins, on the other hand, Peugeot 3008 takes the lead in this ranking. In second and third place Volvo XC60 and Volvo XC40.
