Tesla also had impressive growth in 2021, almost doubling its sales worldwide led by the popularity of the Model 3 and Model Y. This American car company has performed many feats to make the electric car mainstream, and demand for these powerful and efficient models does not appear to be waning anytime soon. Several publications and analysts have estimated Tesla’s 2021 U.S. sales to be around 350,000 units sold (the company only releases global sales data) with the Model Y as the likely best-seller. Smaller than Model X, Model Y offers optional third-row seating that enables the vehicle to carry up to seven occupants. A dual-motor system provides torque to both the front and rear axles for full-time all-wheel-drive capability.
