The Tesla Model Y and Tesla Model 3 headed the list of TOP 5 most sold electric vehicles in the United States of America. However, a newcomer from Germany took third place.
While in Europe EVs confidently push the vehicles with internal combustion engines, there is no trend like this in the USA. There the major automakers have been preparing fully electric versions of beloved pickup trucks, but it is too early to tell about the popularity of electric vehicles at those shores.
Nevertheless, there are supporters of ‘green’ vehicles in the country: September sales clearly proved this. A pair of Tesla models led in the U.S. TOP 5 most sold electric vehicles, as expected. The Model Y crossover totaled 15,120 units, and the Model 3 hatchback amounted to 12,285 cars. Last month, the Tesla Model 3 was a best-seller in the UK in the overall ranking, by the way.
As for American sales, the newcomer of 2021 – Volkswagen ID.4 – took third place. The German electric crossover boasts around 2,000 sales a month, September was not an exception: the U.S. purchasers bought 2,042 ID.4s.
The Ford Mustang Mach E was fourth with 1,578 sales. The Chevrolet Bolt lagged behind a bit with 1,524 sales
Let’s dwell on three more electric vehicles. The Tesla Model S sold 1300-1400 cars monthly at the beginning of the year. Then sales dropped, and only in the last three months the situation has improved somewhat. However, only 911 cars were bought in September.
The once-popular Nissan Leaf found only 791 buyers. Interestingly, the Porsche Taycan, which is almost three times more expensive than the Leaf, sold 628 units last month. Moreover, in April, May and June, the Taycan sales in the USA significantly exceeded 1000 vehicles a month.
In continuation of the theme of the US EV market, we can add that most customers who reserved the all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning came from other brands.
