— A new study by a national transportation research organization has found that the sales of the Tesla Model S and Model X, both vehicles that are expected to make their debut in 2019, have been up by more than 60% in the past three months.
The study by the National Association of Manufacturers, or NAM, found that sales of all three vehicles rose by more or less at the same pace during the same time period.
The average increase in sales was 7.7%.
The Model S sedan sold 1.2 million units in January and the Model X by more 10% in January.
The sales of Tesla vehicles are now selling at a higher rate than they have in years, which is good news for the company.
In the year through June, Tesla has sold more than 10 million vehicles.
That number will be even higher by the end of the year as Tesla is expected to release a large number of Model 3 vehicles and unveil a new version of the Model S. Tesla is also expected to unveil a smaller, lower-cost, and smaller version of its Model X. Despite the excitement surrounding Tesla’s upcoming vehicle, the NAM says the Model 3 will not be able to compete with the Model 4 and Model 5, which are already on sale.
Even if Tesla were to launch a smaller car in 2019 than it did in 2016, the Model III would not be in competition with a larger car.
More important, the new study finds that the growth of Model X and Model 3 has been offset by a decline in sales of other vehicles.
The Model X has declined by nearly half a million vehicles, while the Model Y has decreased by less than 5,000.
NAM Chairman John P. Flannery said that the decline in the Model E is a result of “unprecedented demand” for the electric sedan.
“In contrast, the demand for Model S has been driven by the continued high cost of electric vehicles, and the introduction of the new Model X,” Flannery wrote in a statement.
As for the Model 2, the study found that in the first three months of 2019, Model S sales increased by nearly 25% compared with the same period in 2017.
The Tesla Model X did not see a similar increase in its sales.
Overall, the sales increase in January was up by 18%, March by 23%, and May by 11%.
In the first quarter of 2019 alone, Model X sales rose by about 7% and Model S increased by almost 3%.
In terms of the overall Model 3 production, the company reported in January that production for the vehicle was up about 30% in 2019 compared with January of last year.
Tesla said it had more than 5.3 million vehicles produced in 2019.
While the sales figures are encouraging, Flannery noted that the company has more work to do.
He said that Tesla will need to make significant progress in order to achieve its goal of creating a fleet of 500,000 vehicles per year by 2025.
Flannery said Tesla should begin by “providing a compelling product experience that customers will love, and that we are going to be able turn into a household name.”
