Tesla Model Y outsells Model 3 in California in Q1 2021


Even before Tesla released the Model Y, CEO Elon Musk said the electric SUV would be so popular it would outsell the Model S, Model 3, and Model X combined.

Musk’s bold claim has already come true, at least in the automaker’s home state of California in the first quarter of 2021.

According to data from Cross-Sell, a research firm that publishes registration and title information, there were 8,060 Model 3 registrations in California in the first three months of the year.

The Model Y racked up 12,227 registrations, handily beating out the electric sedan by nearly 52%.

Tesla manufactured no Model S and Model X vehicles in the first quarter due to the production line shutdown for the refresh, but did report 2,020 deliveries in the quarter.

These figures from California helped Tesla set a worldwide delivery record of nearly 185,000 vehicles in the first quarter of 2021. Tesla will announce their first quarter financials on April 26 next week.
