The battery electric vehicle (BEV) market in Switzerland is growing. In a month that saw a big drop in overall vehicle sales, down 17.6% compared to the same month last year, BEVs once again bucked the trend and increased 63.4% last month.
Leading the way was the Tesla Model 3, which was the best selling car in the country in Nov
ember, even when taking internal combustion engine (ICE) cars into account.
During the 30-day period, a total of 463 Model 3s were sold, a 30% increase compared to November 2020.
According to data from bestsellingcarsblog, November is the ninth month this year the Model 3 has claimed the top spot.
Not far behind in third place was the Model Y with 360 units sold.
Only the Dacia Duster, a compact crossover SUV that starts at just £14,295 (~$24,000 CAD) was able to split the two Teslas, coming in second with 381 sales in the month.
Switzerland isn’t the only market in Europe where Tesla is showing off their strength, even before Giga Berlin gets up and running.
In Germany Tesla sales rose 243% last month, with EVs taking 20.3% of all November car sales.
A similar story is playing out in the United Kingdom (UK) where in November the Model 3 was the third most popular car.
