Apart from The Netherlands, the other European nations where Tesla is a hot buzzword at the moment include- Belgium, Austria, Spain as well as Italy.

In fact, in all of the aforementioned nations, the Model 3 has recorded a highly exciting number of sales thus far in the year. But it wasn’t that the exciting offering from Tesla was highly in demand in the previous years.

If one happens to check the data of the past few years, then in countries like Italy, Spain, and Belgium, there were only a few units of the Tesla Model 3 that were ever sold. Of course, things have changed for the better for inarguably, the finest maker of all-electric cars today.

Among the cars that sold a few units previously included the Tesla Model S, apart from the Model X, while now, one’s seen a great rise in the sales of the Model 3.

In addition to the above, it’s interesting to capture some insights pertaining to why Tesla has emerged as a cracker of a car brand in The Netherlands, as produced by Interesting Engineering (

The Netherlands and Norway have always been big consumers of Tesla cars, even before the Model 3 hit the roads in Europe. 

But when the Model 3 came to the European market earlier this year, it pushed Norway ahead of the game, as the country is the global leader in electric vehicle adoption. 

The two nations have strongly favored using green energy, forging the path for others to follow suit.

This is further demonstrated by their populations’ clear choice in buying the Model 3 as their car and Tesla as their brand of choice.
