Volkswagen exceeds Tesla in electric vehicle sales in Western Europe


The Tesla Model 3 is the most popular electric car in both the US and Europe, but in the Old World Volkswagen is treading on Tesla's heels with its relatively affordable ID.3 and ID.4 models. According to the German edition, in eight months of this year in Europe, they were sold more than Tesla Model 3.

And do not be confused by the fact that two Volkswagen models oppose the same Tesla model - ID.3 and ID.4 are built on the same platform. A total of 76,415 units were sold (about 44,000 ID.3 and about 33,000 ID.4), during the same time 75,000 new Tesla Model 3s were registered. It can be argued that other Tesla models are also sold in Western Europe - and this is true, but neither the Model Y, nor even the Model S and Model X made it into the top 20 most popular electric vehicles in Western Europe this year. In the meantime, Volkswagen has sold around 24,000 more eUP compact electric vehicles. So the leadership of the German concern in the segment is evident.

Among all Western European countries, most of the sales of electric vehicles are in Germany: in the eight months of this year, 204 thousand electric vehicles were sold in this country alone.
