Tesla Model S Outselling Competitors in California

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-08_0567ee946c.jpgPhoto by Mark Von Holden/WireImage (NEW YORK) -- Despite being criticized for its high costs, the Tesla Model S car outsold a number of notable vehicle manufacturers in California for the first half of 2013. According to Slate, Tesla cornered 0.6 percent of the light-duty vehicle market in California for the first six months of the year.

That figure represents more vehicles than were sold in that same time span by Buick, Fiat, Land Rover, Lincoln or Mitsubishi. In the last month of data, Tesla also outsold Cadillac, Chrysler and Porsche.

Even more impressive than the numbers themselves is that Tesla is competing with, and in many cases outselling, companies that sell multiple different cars. Tesla currently only has the Model S in production.

Slate points out that California residents have purchased an unprecedented high number of hybrid vehicles, making the state somewhat different from the rest of the U.S. Pure electric vehicles outsold plug-in hybrids largely due to Tesla's sales totals.

The Tesla Model S has a base price of $63,750 after a federal rebate, but has outsold its competitors in the high-luxury class nationally.
