America’s best-selling luxury vehicles in 2018 so far

Motoring Research Logo By John Moroney of Motoring Research | Slide 3 of 16: YTD sales: 59,067 Production of the Tesla Model 3 is ramping up and the company is closing in on its quarterly goals. Though the standard $35,000 Model 3 is still not available, the $44,000 Model 3 Range + and a high-performance $78,000 dual-motor version are now shipping. Founder Elon Musk tweeted in May: “With production, 1st you need achieve target rate & then smooth out flow to achieve target cost. Shipping min cost Model 3 right away wd cause Tesla to lose money & die. Need 3 to 6 months after 5k/wk to ship $35k Tesla & live.” The 5,000 unit per week goal was mostly achieved in July, and rumors suggest production of the low cost model could begin in late 2018 or early 2019, though some analysts predict it will never be produced at all. Even without the base model, the Model 3 is the number one selling domestic luxury vehicle. Strong July numbers made it the best sales month ever for an electric, hybrid, or plug-in hybrid vehicle.
