Model Y continues to dominate California EV market as Tesla registrations increase 85% in Q2 2021

ModelY

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said several times he believes the Model Y has what it takes to outsell the Model 3, Model S, and Model X combined. After just over one year on the market, it is already well on its way to achieving that milestone, especially in their home state of California.

According to data from Cross-Sell, registrations of the Tesla vehicles in California increased 85% from the same quarter last year. That increase was largely driven by the Model Y which saw a total of 13,581 registrations in the three month period.

That was also an increase from the first quarter of the year when there were 12,227 Model Y registrations in California.

The popularity of the Model Y helped Tesla accumulate 46,926 registrations in the 23 states where Cross-Sell collects data. The Golden State was by far the leader in the US, accounting for more than half of Tesla’s total registrations with 23,556.

These figures helped Tesla achieve a blockbuster second quarter. In numbers released earlier this month Tesla sold 201,250 vehicles around the world, eclipsing their previous record set in the previous quarter.

That should equate to another record quarter in terms of revenue. Tesla will release their Q2 2021 financial results after markets close on July 26.
