That’s double the number of Model X flagship SUVs sold
Tesla ranks # 1 in its June electric car sales report with its best-selling Model 3, as we wrote about earlier today. But the Top 20 auto rating includes other models of the company.
Tesla Sells 7,500 Model Y Crossovers In June, Launches Production Of Most Affordable Version Of Model
For example, the Model Y crossover has already entered the Top 10 – despite the fact that it has been on sale for only a few months. In fact, 7,500 Model Y was sold in June, accounting for 3.26% of global electric vehicle sales in June this year. For comparison, the Model X SUV, also included in the Top 20, found only 3,599 buyers in June.
In the fall, Model Y sales may increase due to the release of a new version of the car – Long Range Rear Wheel Drive. According to the source, Tesla has already started its trial production, mass production can begin within a month, and orders will begin to be accepted even earlier. Model Y Long Range Rear-Wheel Drive will be the most affordable version of the crossover. The head of the company Elon Musk promised that it will cost $ 45,000. The car has already appeared in the proprietary configurator with a price of $ 48,000, but it is possible that it was just a mistake.
