Tesla 4th Quarter Registrations in California Jump 63% Thanks To Model Y

Tesla's car registrations in California jumped nearly 63% during the fourth quarter of 2020 compared with last year, largely due to the success of the company's Model Y, according to data from Cross-Sell.

Cross-Sell, a research firm that collates title and registration data, released the report on Wednesday, January 20, showing Tesla's registrations in California. California, of course, is Tesla's largest U.S. Market and it really recovered well from the 3rd quarter low of about 16,200 vehicles. It recovered from that low to 22,117 Tesla vehicles in the 3 months ending December 2020.

Reuters notes that car registration figures might not accurately reflect the number of vehicle deliveries during the quarter as registrations in the United States typically take about 30 days from the time of sale.

In Cross-Sell's report you can also find the following topics:

  • Q4 California state registration data by model
  • Year-over-year monthly registration data comparing Q4 2020 to Q4 2019
  • Collective Q4 2020 data from 23 states, by model, by month
  • Average pricing data by model from the state of Texas
  • Top Tesla lienholders in California and the rest of the U.S.
  • Charts and graphs highlighting trends listed above
  • Information on how to properly accredit Cross-Sell, LLC.
