The insolent domination of Tesla in the United States

According to the latest data relayed by Electrek, Tesla would reign supreme over the electric car sector in the United States. The Model Y and Model 3, in particular, show very high figures compared to the competition during the first quarter of 2022.

In Europe, the Tesla Model 3 very regularly dominates the ranking of the best electric registrations. The manufacturer’s compact sedan enjoys growing interest and a certain population. In the United States, Elon Musk’s firm also masters its subject, and with style.

The latest data published by the firm Experian and relayed by Electrek establish a clear observation in the first quarter of 2022: the Teslas have largely dominated the competition in terms of deliveries, with a Model Y in top form and a Model 3 which is close behind. The duo has sold nearly 100,000 units in total.

An unchallenged reign

Seeing the compact SUV take first place in the ranking is not surprising as it seduces with its practicality, thanks to generous space and a substantial trunk volume. It is therefore very practical for families and long trips. The Model 3 is still an excellent electric car.

The third step of the podium is to be credited to another Tesla: the Model S (9250). See for yourself the huge gap between the leading pair and the rest of the fray. As pointed out Electrekthe large sedan from the American manufacturer tames the Ford Mustang Mach-E, which is less expensive by tens of thousands of dollars.

Model Deliveries
Tesla Model Y 52051
Tesla Model 3 47682
Tesla Model S 9250
Ford Mustang Mach-E 6957
Hyundai Ioniq 5 6265
Kia EV6 4901
Tesla Model X 4899
Nissan Leaf 4401
Kia e Niro 3549
Volkswagen ID.4 2926

The rest of the standings remain relatively tight. But above all, it is necessary to temper these figures which do not correspond so much to demand, but “more to the production capacity of each“, warns the media. Waiting times before delivery often vary between 4 and 12 months with sometimes limited production.

The electric pick-up counterattack

Production capacities, precisely, are an integral part of Tesla’s strategy, whose American gigafactories are working at full speed to assemble and deliver as many vehicles as possible. Volkswagen has understood these issues well, since it will invest 7.1 billion dollars in the American market for the next 5 years.

In the future, it will be interesting to see how well the Tesla Model Y and Tesla Model 3 will withstand the tidal wave of electric pickups (Cybertruck, Rivian R1T, Ford F-150 Lightning). This ultra-popular vehicle segment across the Atlantic is tending to become more and more electrified. They are necessarily predicted a bright future on a land already almost conquered.
