Tesla Model Y best-selling car in Europe in September

The Tesla Model Y continues to enjoy worldwide success and was recently recognized as Europe’s best-selling vehicle in September.

Big thanks to Tesla’s Continuing Manufacturing Platform and Their New European Facility outside of Berlin, the company can finally respond to the huge demand for their vehicles in Europe. According to research conducted by JATO Dynamics, as reported by: Reutersthe Tesla Model Y was the best-selling vehicle in Europe in September.

In September alone, Tesla achieved 29,367 Model Y registrations in Europe, up 227% from the same time last year. The Tesla leads the ever-popular Peugeot 208 narrowly in second place and the Dacia Sandero in third.

Since the Tesla Model Y has already been reported as the best-selling car in Germany and the second best-selling car in the UK in September, it was no surprise that it could control the entire continent. Nevertheless, this is an incredible achievement for what is ostensibly a luxury vehicle, with a starting price well above the industry average.

As noted by Reuters, Tesla’s Giga Berlin facility is likely a huge factor at this performance. However, there are likely other factors at play. First, Tesla had been building demand for Model Y in Europe for a long time since it launched in North America. This plays on the company’s ability to build years of reservations and, even today, a current wait for their in-demand crossover SUV.

Tesla is also seizing an ideal moment in the European car market. The energy crisis and government regulations regarding gas vehicles are slowly pushing more and more people towards electric vehicles. At the same time, Tesla’s extensive charging network makes their vehicles an obvious choice for buyers seeking a hassle-free ownership experience.

This leads to the question, where is the ceiling on Tesla’s demand? The company can’t continue to sell vehicles at BMW prices and expect Volkswagen-esque sales statistics forever; either the market will become saturated, or Tesla will have to expand into more affordable offerings. But for now, at least it remains unclear where that “ceiling” will be.
