As reported earlier today, electric vehicles are seeing a higher share of auto sales in California than ever before. The Tesla Model Y is the 2nd best selling vehicle in the state across the board! The Model 3 is the 12th best selling vehicle. Overall, plugin vehicles accounted for 11% of all new auto sales in the first half of 2021.
Though, taking a look at these broad views of the market and the top sellers leaves out some more nuanced perspective. In particular, three electric vehicle models topped their vehicle classes in the Golden State.
First of all, starting with the little guy, the Chevy Bolt is leading its Subcompact Cars class. In fact, it’s not even close, and the Bolt has a whopping 34.6% share of this car class. The send best selling car in the Subcompact class is the Nissan Versa, with 25.5% share.
Interestingly, the Tesla Model 3 has a similarly strong grip on its class, the “Near Luxury” car class (which, I’ll admit, I always find to be an name for a vehicle class). The Model 3 holds 36.6% of this class, more than three times more than than the BMW 3-Series’ 11.1% vehicle class share.
Rather than going from more impressive to less impressive, though, we’re getting more impressive each step of the way. The Tesla Model Y was far and away the king or queen of its class, the Luxury Compact SUV class. The Model Y held a jaw-dropping 38.9% of this class in the first half of the year, while the #2 Lexus NX held just 9.6% of the class.
