A new free report from Descartes Datamyne provides trade data on Tesla electric vehicles exports, including Model S and Model X, volumes and country destinations in 2016.
Tesla shipped 22,007 electric vehicles (EVs) to markets abroad in 2016, an 11.9% increase over 2015, according to Descartes Datamyne waterborne export data.
Based on the manifests filed by exporters, our data captures the number of vehicles exported by Tesla each month as well as the countries where they are off-loaded. The data provides an indicator of the direction of EV foreign sales – or “deliveries” in Tesla parlance – in Asia and Europe (but not in North America, where the EVs ship overland).
The data is available in our free report Tracking Tesla 2016
