At 24,591 cars registered, Tesla’s Model 3 recorded year-on-year growth of 58%, followed by Renault’s Clio, Dacia’s Sandero and Volkswagen’s Golf model, JATO said.
In the battery electric vehicle segment, Tesla’s Model 3 and Y ranked first and second, with Volkswagen’s ID.3 in third place.
“The strong performance of the Model 3 is in part explained by Tesla’s intensive end-of-quarter sales push,” JATO said.
