Tesla Celebrates Milestone: 100,000 Electric Cars on Australian Roads

By Alex Misoyannis

Tesla, the American electric car company founded by tech billionaire Elon Musk, has reached a significant milestone in Australia. The company has recently put license plates on its 100,000th vehicle in the country, marking a major achievement in the electric vehicle market.

The milestone was announced on social media by Tesla Australia on Thursday afternoon, almost a decade after the company’s first delivery of a vehicle in July 2010. The announcement comes as Tesla continues to dominate the electric car market in Australia, with over half of its 100,000 vehicles delivered in the past year alone.

According to reports, Tesla’s cumulative sales in Australia include approximately 40,000 Model Y midsize SUVs, 46,000 Model 3 midsize sedans, and the remaining vehicles spread across Model S large sedans, Model X large SUVs, and Roadster sports cars. The surge in sales over the past year has solidified Tesla’s position as a key player in the Australian automotive industry.

However, this milestone coincides with Tesla’s decision to stop reporting its monthly sales data to the auto industry’s VFACTS reports from July. The company recently withdrew its membership from the peak body for new car makers in Australia, the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI). It remains unclear whether Tesla will continue to report monthly sales data through its own media channels.

Despite this change in reporting practices, Tesla’s success in Australia is undeniable. The company’s focus on sustainable transportation and cutting-edge technology has resonated with Australian consumers, leading to a significant increase in electric vehicle adoption across the country.

As Tesla celebrates its 100,000th vehicle milestone in Australia, the future looks bright for the electric car manufacturer. With continued innovation and a growing demand for sustainable transportation options, Tesla is well-positioned to lead the way towards a greener, cleaner automotive future.
