Tesla was by far the leader in electric vehicle sales in the United States in the first half of 2019, according to estimates from the InsideEVs website.
According to InsideEV, the group sold approximately 83,875 vehicles in the United States between January and June, more than 10 times the number of vehicles sold by General Motors, putting it in second place. While Tesla sells three fully electric models, more than most other automakers, Tesla's best-selling vehicle, the Model 3 luxury sedan, outclassed all other vehicles by at least 750%, according to InsideEV .

However, electric vehicles represent only 1% of the US car market and remain unprofitable for Tesla and many of its competitors, which means that traditional car manufacturers may not yet be motivated to sell them in large numbers.
According to InsideEV, these are the top 10 electric vehicles sold in the United States in the first half of this year. Website estimates are based on factors such as vehicle identification numbers and sales data of automakers, although some rely more on the judgment of InsideEV staff.
