Tesla

Tesla_Model_S-auto-sales-statistics-EuropeTesla started its European Model S sales in 2013, when it opened a factory in The Netherlands, to assemble American-made Model S sedans for the European market. Before 2013, the brand had sold the Roadster in low volumes in Europe. The Model S has taken the all-electric brand to new heights, selling over 15.000 cars in Europe in 2015, making it the third best selling EV in the continent, behind the much cheaper Renault Zoe and Nissan Leaf.

The success of the fully electric Model S, which competes in the same class as the BMW 5-series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6, is still dependent on government incentives on EV’s. With Norway and The Netherlands leading in stimulating green transportation, it makes sense that Tesla sales in Europe took off first in these two countries. In the first years of sales, these two countries have taken over 80% of Model S sales.

Among the existing incentives in Norway, all-electric cars are exempt from all non-recurring vehicle fees, including purchase taxes, which are extremely high for ordinary cars, and 25% VAT on purchase, together making an electric car purchase price competitive with that of a similarly sized conventional car. Electric vehicles are also exempt from the annual road tax, all public parking fees, and toll payments, as well as being able to use bus lanes until 2018 or until the 50.000 EV target is achieved.

Tesla had a big fleet order in 2014 from two Dutch taxi companies which are using a combined 167 Tesla Model S 100% electric sedans to transport airline passengers to and from Amsterdam Schiphol airport.

The Model X crossover started sales in Europe in the second half of 2016 and should give the brand another boost.
