The all-electric Tesla Model 3 has gone to number one in the chart for car sales in June, beating the VW Golf by more than 800 sales.
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders says 5,468 Model 3s were sold last month, compared to 4,629n VW Golfs.
Other top selling cars were the Ford Puma, Vauxhall Corsa and Ford Fiesta.
There’s no explanation for why the Tesla has suddenly surged to the top of the sales chart, given it is not even in the top ten for the whole of the year. This will hearten the Government, though, given its plan to have phased out the sale of petrol and diesel vehicles within ten years.
