Tesla Model S Is Third Best-Selling Luxury Car In California

As of this year’s first six months, California-based Tesla Motors’ Model S is the third best-selling luxury model in the Golden State.

According to the California New Car Dealers Association, the electric car maker sold 4,714 examples of its all-electric luxury sedan through June compared to the second-place BMW 5-Series with 6,077 sold and the Mercedes E-Class with 6,582.

We’ve seen reports California nearly accounts for fully half of Tesla’s sales, but this appears to be a slight overestimation. As of June, the Dashboard showed first-half-year Model S sales nationally at an estimated 10,650 sold.

Assuming this is reasonably accurate (our analysis based on existing data believes it is, but Tesla does not report monthly sales), Tesla’s California sales would be somewhere around a still-considerable 44 percent of the U.S. market.
