Tesla topped a number of vehicle sales categories in Germany, according to data from the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (kBa) shared this week (via @Berlinergy).

The Tesla Model Y topped year to date charts for BEVs with 35,426 units registered at 7.5 percent of the sector’s market share.

The news comes after Tesla opened its Gigafactory in Grünheide, Germany last spring, which reached a production milestone of 3,000 Model Y units built in a week just last month. In June, Tesla aimed to reach a weekly Model Y output of 3,000 per week by October.
Tesla also sold a record 92,000 vehicles across Europe in the fourth quarter of 2022, marking a 77-percent jump year over year.
