That boost in traffic is likely due to the company’s first vehicle announcement for the R1S, and the attention for the upcoming R1T electric pickup truck, expected to be released later this year.

Tesla also saw a large jump in visitor traffic, increasing 28.1% year-over-year. Following Tesla were Genesis (12.3%), Cadillac (8.0%), and Hyundai (6.7%).

The increased traffic is a sign of rising consumer interest and awareness in EV’s and the “potential ripening of the market for automakers”, according to Comscore.
