NSW RMS was very slow getting the stats out for Q3... so much so that I emailed them on Monday asking what was going on. Whether that was the trigger I'll never know, but the Q3 stats have been finally published! And what an interesting quarter it was! You will not be surprised to learn that in Q3 NSW saw a record number of BEVs registered - a total of 904 new BEVs landed on our roads, more than quadrupling the previous record of 198, set Jan-Mar 2018. But what I found even more interesting was that Tesla did not have it all their own way. Tesla did of course also set a new record - adding 593 vehicles to NSW roads, smashing their previous record of 142 set in Q2 2017. There are now 1931 Teslas on NSW roads. But the number of non-Tesla BEVs added is also a record: 311, triple the previous record of 105 set only last quarter. So Tesla's incremental market share this quarter was an impressive 65% but in the past Tesla had virtually no competition and regularly represented more than 80% of all new BEV registrations in a quarter. Tesla's fleet market share has now bounced up to 58.1% but that's still short of their record 60.3% set a year ago. At the end of Q3, NSW had a total of 3322 BEVs on the road. Here's the updated chart with a brand-new Y-axis to cope: The next quarter will also be fascinating, as it will be the first complete quarter with sustained Model 3 deliveries. Expect records to be broken again!
