Tesla U.S. August Sales Up 105% Year-over-year

On September 2, TrueCar released the sales data of each car company in the U.S. market in August. The data showed that Tesla delivered 47,629 new vehicles in August, up 105 percent year-on-year and up far more than other car companies. In second place was General Motors Group, up 40.9 percent year-on-year. In third place was Daimler Group, with a 40 percent increase.

From the overall data, the higher the electricity content of the car companies rose more, while the lower the electricity content of the car companies decline more serious. Negative electrification of Honda fell 41.5%, Nissan fell 24.5%, Toyota fell 9.4%. In front of the big trend, it really can't do without admitting weakness!

Now, the second in the U.S. electric car market is Ford. In August, the group delivered 157,393 new vehicles, up 27.6% year-on-year. Ford sold 5,897 pure electric vehicles (3,120 Mustang, 2,373 F-150 Lightning and 404 E-Transit), up 307% year-on-year. Pure electric vehicles accounted for 3.9% of the brand share.

The Volkswagen Group also performed well in terms of numbers, up 25% year-over-year.

Looking at the group's market share, Tesla's reached 4.1% in the United States, having surpassed the two traditional giants, BMW Group and Daimler Group. However, there is still a big gap between 16.4% of GM Group and 13.7% of Ford.
