Tesla Model 3 has exceeded one million sales
One of our readers recently pointed out that the Tesla Model 3 has apparently passed one million cumulative sales (deliveries). Indeed, looking at my own long-term Tesla sales records, by the end of Q2 2021, the Model 3 had reached 1,031,588 deliveries worldwide.
This makes the Model 3 the first electric car to exceed one million cumulative sales.
Note that these are not 100% official figures, as Tesla reports deliveries of the Model 3 and Y combined. However, official registration data for Model 3 and Model Y from dozens of countries helps inform my quarterly numbers.
In the 2nd quarter, I estimate that 225,000 Model 3 cars were delivered to customers, the crossover point of one million vehicles surely arriving in June.
The Tesla Model Y, meanwhile, has just passed 250,000 cumulative sales, and my forecast is that it will slightly exceed 500,000 by the end of the year.
The Model S and Model X were both nearing 200,000 deliveries at the end of Q2 (June).
Our reader notes that the Nissan LEAF surpassed 500,000 cumulative sales in December 2020. It is the only electric car other than the Model 3 to have done so. Will LEAF ever reach 1 million sales?
Other than the Model 3, Model Y, and potentially the Nissan LEAF, which electric models are most likely to exceed one million in sales one day?
