Tesla Model S Sales versus Mercedes S-Class sales Europe

A first sign of what the future holds in store has emerged from AID’s model sales figures from last year’s fast recovering West European new car market

Sending a strong signal to autoindustry heads, Mercedes’ flagship S-Class, for long the most popular luxury chariot in Western Europe, was last year outsold in Western Europe by Tesla’s comparatively recent all-electric Models S, according to AID compiled data. 

Last year, Tesla Models S sales in Western Europe edged up to 15,787 units, according to AID’s exclusively compiled data, while Mercedes sold 14,990 of its top-notch S-Class model.

Echoing its recent pioneering track record in sunny California, and buoyed by rave media reviews, for at least some of Europe’s well-heeled early adopters the Tesla Model S now comes with all the familiar hallmarks of the latest driveway prestige symbol.

With a German range-entry price of €78,000 for the two-wheel drive model, rising to €120,300 for the all-singing-and-dancing four-wheel-drive ‘Performance’ model, Tesla’s legendary Model S – arguably the most accomplished electric car on the scene today - flies in the high-euro stratosphere
