Tesla sells more than Audi

Apparently Tesla carmaker is doing very well in terms of sales. Why are we saying this? Well, in a press statement, Audi of America seemed to be concerned about a report according to which Tesla sold more Model S sedans in North America in the first quarter of 2013, 4.750 to be more precise, than German Mercedes-Benz S-Class, 3.077, the BMW 7-Series, 2,338 and Audi A8 sedans with 1.462 units. Audi was not please with the fact that the report indicated that Tesla in beating Mercedes, BMW and Audi as it was a bit misleading, but still it involved the Tesla Model S and the three big, German manufacturers. There were a lot of news on this matter, but this is the only one involving all four carmaker. Last week we have mentioned only the Tesla Model S and the Mercedes S-Class, but not things are getting serious. Audi insisted in bringing into our attention the fact that Tesla reported sales of 4.750 units of its Model S electric car last month which were less than half of Audi of America sales of 13.157 vehicles in April. We do have to get in the middle a bit and say that the 4.750 units Tesla sold were not the ones in April, but the ones sold from January through March.



So far, Audi has a full range of vehicles and a long presence in the market and it manages to sell a lot more cars than new brands, like the Tesla for example in only a few months. It is also true, that the new carmaker managed to gain so much popularity in such short time and how little ground Audi gained over the years. This is a different story. For the moment these are the details available on the matter.
