Tesla Model 3 Becomes Best-Selling EV in France for Q1, Data Shows



According to a recent tweet from @TeslaOwls citing statistics from AAA Data, the Tesla Model 3 has taken over the French electric vehicle (EV) market to become the best-selling all-electric car in the country for Q1 2020 with 5,763 units sold in the first quarter.

The Model 3 was the best-selling EV across the globe in February, and the Tesla offering has an exceptional prevalence in the European region, dominating EV markets across a number of countries including the U.K. and Iceland.

The bulk of the Model 3’s sales in France came in March. Tesla sold 4,524 units during the month, making the Model 3 France’s best-selling EV for March by a factor of almost three. The next-best seller, Peugeot’s e-208, only sold 1,667 units in the month.

Tesla saw a massive ramp-up in Model 3 sales in France after it lowered prices for the Standard Range Plus variant by €5,600, upping the incentive buyers enjoyed to €7,000 from €3,000. The move effectively dropped the base Model 3 SR+’s price from €46,600 to €36,800.

With Q1 performance that beat the expectations of financial connoisseurs everywhere, Tesla is leaving claimed titles and broken records in its rearview mirror.
