For the sec­ond year in a row, the Tesla Model S crushed its in­ter­nal com­bus­tion en­gine com­peti­tors with to­tal firstquar­ter sales es­ti­mated at 6,730 units in the large lux­ury car seg­ment in the U.S. That is sig­nif­i­cantly more than the Mercedes S-Class with 4,565 units in sec­ond place, and three times more than that of the Porsche Panam­era in third po­si­tion. Sur­pris­ingly, should Tesla main­tain it’s cur­rent Model 3 pro­duc­tion out­put of more than 2,500 units per week, the Model 3 would be­come the best sell­ing car in the small and mid­size lux­ury car seg­ment in the U.S. dur­ing the sec­ond quar­ter. Whether that will be enough to help Tesla turn a profit by midyear is not so cer­tain.
