Tesla is crushing it in the EV space, maintaining a sizeable lead registrations in the US. However, the automaker is seeing more competition as data shows a 57 percent rise in overall EV registrations in September.

Tesla is using the early-mover advantage to its favor as it extends its lead in the global EV industry. However, it is facing increasing competition. This year alone, eight new EV models entered the US market.

This has caused Tesla to drop 2.8 percentage points to 65.4 percent in its share of new EV registrations in the US in September.

EVs accounted for 5.2 percent of new registrations, compared to 2.8 percent a year ago.
