Usually, Tesla does not enter a country quietly but bursts into it loudly. After two months of sales in Singapore, Tesla became the best-selling EV and created serious competition for gasoline and diesel cars, becoming the #6 best-selling car brand in September.

Tesla sales in Singapore began in the last days of July. On July 29, the manufacturer delivered the first Model 3s to customers, marking Tesla's official entry into the city-state market after years of difficult relationships and uncertainties. The delivery event took place at the new showroom in Toa Payoh, which also houses the manufacturer's service center. Since then, the company has influenced significant change in the country's automotive market.

Tesla became the best-selling electric vehicle in September and in Q3 2021, according to information from the Land Transport Authority posted by @darenyoong/Twitter. This is not surprising, since the manufacturer sold 314 vehicles in September alone, which is a high figure for the local market.

However, the more impressive part is that Tesla became the #6 best-selling car in the country in September, not as much behind the competition as you might imagine. Having sold 314 cars in September, Tesla only trailed Hyundai by three units. Toyota is in first place with 778 units. In second place is Honda with 466 units, in third place is Mercedes Benz with 449, and in fourth place is BMW with 425.

It should be kept in mind that Tesla sells only one single model in Singapore---Model 3--while all competitors sell several models at the same time. At the moment, Tesmanian could not find sales data by model, however it seems that Model 3 has also become one of the best-selling models in the country.

Toyota sold 231 "petrol" vehicles, 1 "diesel" and 546 "others" vehicles in September, according to figures published on the Land Transport Authority's website. Each gasoline model sold in the Singapore market loses individually to the sales of Model 3. The "other" category includes "hybrid" vehicles sold by Toyota, of which there are about seven models and sales amounted to 546 units. Thus, it is reasonable to assume that Model 3 could well surpass the sales of each model and become the best-selling car in the country, or at least take one of the top spots. Once sales data by model becomes available, Tesmanian will publish a more detailed analysis.

Good - the other AD should wake up and not overprice their cars.  I see Audi is not even 50% of Tesla despite having all the paper sizes from A1 to A8.

Once all the prospective customers who live in landed bought, sales will drop.....

HDB and condo dwellers seriously very few will be going for Tesla lah.

My friend who lives in high-end condo was laughing at the miserable 4k LTA subsidy for condo to build charging point, just cabling the backend high power infra may take tens of thousands. Very hard for MSCTs to authorize huge sinking fund spending on charging point.

I sat in a x before. Really impressive. But the design is really not my taste. Like what Jeremy Clarkson says, it looks like a fish. Internal quality is still not good.

Ehmm the data is slightly off. 314 comprises of at least 2 units from PI (probably Model X). Go and check the month registration data from LTA.

Wah 314 teslas on the road 

More than that. 314 in the month September alone. Another 165 units were registered in August plus another 8 in July when official Tesla AD started delivering its first model 3 in Singapore. All of all, 487 units had been put on our road since 2H 2021. If you take into consideration another 30 units sold by PI in 1H 2021, we have now >500 Tesla running on our road.

I read that the cost of changing an electric car is less than one third of the price of petrol. Now that the petrol price is very high. It makes electric car more attractive.
