Tesla continued making headlines despite a shutdown that has been caused by the coronavirus. Model 3 is now the 7th best selling car in the United States.
The car was the 9th best selling car last year, thus an increase of two positions. It should, however, be noted that Tesla was still the 7th biggest selling car by the fourth quarter of 2019. Tesla nevertheless, falls to 19th place when all kinds of vehicles were considered.
The American market is still dominated by SUVs and pickup trucks. This means that the Model Y crossover might overtake Model 3 especially with the production back to full capacity in both Shanghai and Tokyo.
