Sales of new vans in the UK came close to record levels during the first six months of 2021 due to a boom in home deliveries and the economy reopening.
Even with the introduction of EVs from European and from mainstream brands — General Motors, Nissan, Audi, Jaguar, Audi, Hyundai –, Tesla continues to outsell the competition.
The electric car maker’s sales in China of $6.66 billion last year accounted for about a fifth, or 21% of the $31.54 billion total.
A Plaid+ version, expected later in 2021, will add even more speed and boost potential range, Tesla claims, to over 520 miles.
The electric vehicles (EVs) market will be 24 million unit sales this year, which represents a decline of 19% year on year from the impact of COVID-19.
