Shocking fact: Tesla’s Model Y is Singapore’s top-selling car for September 2022, bar none

A peek into the new car registration statistics for the month of September 2022 from the Land Transport Authority has revealed that not only are electric cars steadily gaining ground here, but also an interesting sales statistic for Tesla cars.

There were a total of 219 new Tesla SUVs registered in Singapore for the month of September 2022, and as there is only one Tesla SUV on sale here, the all-electric Model Y, all sales numbers would belong to that car.

23 new Tesla sedans were registered during the same month, and that would be attributed to the Model 3, Tesla’s sole sedan offering in Singapore.

Amazingly, the Model Y’s sales figures makes it the top-selling SUV, and pretty much the best-selling car in Singapore for the month of September 2022, beating the individual sales figures from all other brands. The Land Transport Authority does not break down new car registrations by individual models, only by body style.

Even so, Tesla’s 219 new Model Y SUVs on the roads here beats Mercedes-Benz’s combined total of 199 SUVs, and Honda’s 189 new SUVs registered. How do we know it’s the best-selling car in Singapore? Because no other brand registered any body type with similar figures, and even then, the number would be split up between multiple models.

The Tesla Model Y first went on sale on 31st August 2022 with a list price of S$190,195 without COE. There have been no test drives of the car authorised to the public from the official dealership, which means most simply bought the car based in its reputation and reviews.

That’s about to change however, as the Tesla Model Y is going public at the EV Weekend happening at Suntec City in November 2022. Test drive registrations for the Model Y are now open for the first time, sign up here!
