According to the latest figures from the California New Car Dealers association, Tesla is growing exponentially on its California home turf. The Model S (12%) is now the number 3 luxury car Model behind the Mercedes E Class (16.8%) and the BMW 5 Series (15%). The Audi A6 (4.1%) and Lexus GS (5.9%) combined are still two points below Tesla.

Tesla states that it is now making 500 Model Ses per week. If that were the case in June, over half of the Model S production went to California which, according to the report, registered 1097 new Model S’s.  If California is indeed a bellwether state for the rest of the country, the news is very good for Tesla.  Full figures below:
