Tesla Outsells Porsche in California
This sales wasn’t just a monthly sales. It even on a year to date basis through June as Tesla outsells Porsche , Land Rover, Jaguar, Lincoln or Volvo. This report based on California New Car Dealers Association using data sourced from Polk. The report shows that Tesla’s 4,714 registrations in California year to date again through June altogether give it a 0.6 percent market share in that state.
Tesla also far exceeded the June registations of Chrysler, Fiat and Mitsubishi. Tesla CEO Elon Musk plans for Tesla to be a mainstream brand, not one that’s competing head on with luxury and niche makers.
Tesla earlier this week was in the news cycle for its disclosure of the Vehicle Safety Score (VSS) provided to manufacturers, where the Model S achieved a new combined record of 5.4 stars; the company had made the claim that the Model S had the best safety rating of any car ever tested.
