Electric crossover Tesla Model Y has become the best-selling car in the world for the first quarter of 2023, according to The Verge.
So, in the first three months of this year, Tesla sold 267 thousand Model Y around the world. This is 69% more compared to the period under review last year.
The second position was taken by a compact car produced by Toyota — Toyota Corolla with a result of 256.4 thousand units. The third was a medium-sized Toyota Hilux pickup truck, which sold 214.7 thousand cars worldwide.
As the source notes, the Model Y justifies the forecast made by the head of Tesla, Elon Musk. Even before the launch of the discussed model in 2016, he said that it would be sold in circulation from 500 thousand to 1 million per year.
The top five also included Toyota RAV4 and Toyota Camry models, making the Japanese automotive corporation one of the most productive automakers in the world.
