Tesla superseded other luxury sedans like Mercedes and BMW to take the top spot.
Editor’s Remarks: Tesla Model S sold 9156 vehicles in Q3 2016, almost double that of its nearest competitor, the Mercedes S Class. The markets have certainly bought into Elon Musk’s vision and Tesla seems to be innovating at a faster pace than its larger competitors, with features ranging from the “insane mode” for rapid acceleration to autopilot. Tesla continues to be in the lead with autonomous vehicles, well beyond the likes of Uber and Ford. But the company still has a long way to go in its target of producing 500k cars by 2018.
What to watch: Daimler, BMW, Tesla, Ford, Uber
