Since selling its first all-electric car in 2008, Tesla has had a solid track record in the electric vehicle industry. The automaker has come a long way since launching the Roadster, with Tesla accounting for more than 66 percent of electric vehicle registrations in the U.S. that year and through the second quarter of 2022, according to data compiled by Experian. That’s a remarkable feat considering competition from long-standing automakers such as BMW, Volvo and Audi, all of which make famous electric models. In addition to this achievement, many U.S. consumers are not ready to switch to all-electric vehicles, preferring to stay with affordable hybrids.
But for those who want to be fossil-free, Tesla’s cars have undoubtedly been achieved success. Owners and critics alike rave about the latest Tesla models—in fact, the Model X and Model Y are third and fourth, respectively, on U.S. News & World Report’s list of all-electric SUVs. The Model Y, in particular, was praised for its spacious interior, smooth ride, and long battery life.
