The total number of electric cars sold in the first nine months of the year approached 700,000 units worldwide, and estimates based on the pace so far show that the one-million-unit threshold could be passed by the end of the year, according to Jato Dynamics.

As far as electric car companies are concerned, there has been an important change in the ranking of the best-selling cars. Thus, Tesla has overcome BYD, the Chinese company that relies heavily on the local market and has so far sold the most electric cars. The Americans sold 154,123 vehicles, thanks to the growth in Model 3 production, and the Chinese accounted for only 137,436 units.

Meanwhile, Renault - Nissan - Mitsubishi, which was the largest electric builder at the end of July, fell to third place with 131,606 vehicles. The following places are occupied by BMW and BAIC.
