According to data from the Federated Chamber of Automotive Industries, the Model Y sold 5,560 vehicles in June to just edge out the Ford Ranger. Only the Toyota Hi-Lux ute sold more vehicles, with 6,145 vehicles sold in June. The top five vehicles for overall sales were: (via The Driven)

  5. Toyota Rav4 – 2,858 sales

In terms of EV sales, only three models were in the quadruple digits, with the Model Y leading the way, and the BYD Atto 3 just edging out the Model 3 for second and third place respectively. The top ten electric models in terms of sales in June were:
