According to the quarterly update released on Thursday by the California New Car Dealers Association, the Model 3 outsold the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla in the state from the start of the year through March.

At a total of 18,856 registrations for the quarter, according to the report, the Model 3 now also outsells the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, in a sales tally that includes the separate Camry Hybrid and Accord Hybrid versions of each of those models.

German Translation »

The figures for April, with a drop in sales of around two thirds compared to March 2019 despite local production increases, came unexpectedly after new Tesla records in the first quarter of 2020 .

Production at the local Gigafactory increased to nearly 3,000 Model 3s per week by the end of March, which were also sold, and Tesla announced further increases.

China was recently seen as a safe bank for Tesla in the midst of the ongoing coronavirus crisis in the west. Tesla has not been allowed to produce electric cars in the United States since the end of March, while the Gigafactory in Shanghai, Model 3, was built again in early February after a break of less than two weeks. Since then, Tesla’s production and sales in China have steadily increased , but figures for April have now been published that do not fit the positive picture: According to the industry association CPCA, Tesla only sold a good 3,600 Model 3s in April in China, two thirds less than the previous month. Production is said to have been a solid 11,000 electric cars…

This stable demand for EVs saw the Tesla Model 3 become the nation’s best-selling car in April with 658 examples sold. The second best-selling car was another EV, the Jaguar I-Pace with 367 units. It is understood the Model 3’s sales figures come largely as a result of the fulfillment of orders taken online prior to the lockdown.

Analyst expects CATL to lead battery capacity deployed as Chinese EV sales rebound

Adamas Intelligence »

Looking forward, with a rebound in monthly EV sales around the corner for China, and Tesla facing the possibility of lengthy shutdowns and market challenges in North America and Europe, we expect CATL will capture the lead from LG Chem in the near-term.

Moreover, in terms of cell chemistry deployments, we expect that CATL’s impending resurgence, coupled with rising deployment of LG Chem -made NCM 811 cells in China-made Tesla Model 3s, will push the market share of NCM 811 higher still.
