Tesla Is Outselling Porsche, Volvo and Land Rover in California
California loves Tesla Motors and its Model S luxury electric sports sedan. According to the latest car sales figures reported by the California New Car Dealers Association, Tesla captured 12 percent of the luxury sports car category in the state during the first half of 2013 — enough to surpass the Audi A6 and Lexus GS. Granted, the company sold 4,714 Model S’s during the first half of the year, 1,097 of them in June. But that was enough to outsell Porsche, Volvo, Cadillac, Jaguar, Buick and Land Rover during that first month of summer. Impressive. Remember, Tesla is selling only one model of car.
