Tesla still dominates US electric car market, and it’s not even close

New registration data show that Tesla is still dominating the US electric car market, and it’s not even close.

Something is going to have to break for EV adoption to accelerate in the country.

For years now, Tesla has been dominating the electric auto market in its home country.

It is expected that Tesla’s hold on the market will erode as more EV options hit and help grow the US market, but for now, the US EV market is still extremely dependent on Tesla.

Now new data has come out for 2021 as part of a new report based on registration data from Experian, and Tesla is a bit down, as expected.

But, the company still holds a strong majority of EV market shares in the United States.

According to the report, Tesla still holds 69.95% EV market share in the United States with Nissan coming in at a distant second place with 8.51%
