More Than 80% of EVs Sold in the US Are Teslas

The company makes the three best-selling electric vehicles in the country.

According to a report from Buy Shares, an online source for stock market news, Tesla accounted for 81.66% of all electric vehicles sold in the U.S. through June.

Elon Musk’s company has sold 71,375 vehicles during this stretch, with the Model 3 leading the way at 38,314 vehicles sold.

The report credits Tesla’s combination of safety and speed as the leading reasons for market dominance.

Tesla also holds the second and third spots, with their Model Y SUV registering nearly 19,000 sales, and the Model X tallying 9,500.

The top non-Tesla vehicles are the Chevy Bolt (fourth with 8,370 sales), Nissan Leaf (sixth), Audi e-Tron (seventh) and Porsche Taycan (eighth with just over 1,000 units sold).
