Our Take On The Passenger Car Numbers

September saw the Tesla Model 3 move on from beating all its premium competitors to mix it with volume-brand passenger cars.

For the month, the Model 3 placed fourth overall in terms of volume shifted during September, outselling popular rivals from Toyota, Hyundai, Ford and Nissan.

An aggressive production ramp-up that started in July this year has seen around 54,000 Model 3s delivered in the third quarter of 2018, eclipsing the performance of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class – September’s second-top-selling premium car besides Model 3 – for the year so far.
