In Europe Tesla just keeps climbing, but second glance reveals less rosy picture

Tesla quarterly sales history Western Europe

Although so far, pure electric cars (BEVs) like Nissanís Leaf or Renaultís ZOE for example may not be the big instant winners that carmakers had hoped, Tesla already provides a first taste of what Europeís car sales future holds in store.

During the nine months to September this year, sales of Teslaís highly successful Model S and X in Western Europe may still be trailing Renaultís ZOE in pole position, or for that matter the second and third placed BMW i3 and Nissan Leaf, but in West Europeís BEV car sales league the Tesla brand already ranks as Europeís number two.

AIDís own provisional sales numbers reveal that in the nine months to September this year combined West European sales of Teslaís Model S and Model X rocketed ahead by just over a half. 

Thatís a more than 50 per cent sales gain to almost 18,000 units from a markedly smaller 11,600 sales during the same period last year.

Even more impressive to some observers and thanks to Teslaís usual end of quarter boost in deliveries, according to provisional AID data the Model S was Septemberís top-selling BEV in Western Europe. 

A chart-topping 2,400 were first registered in the region last month, followed by Renaultís Zoe as Septemberís runner-up.
