Tesla Now Top Selling Domestic Luxury Brand

I don’t know if anyone’s commented on this yet, but, with 2018 closed out, it seems Tesla has overtaken Lincoln and Cadillac to become the best selling domestic luxury marque in the US.

The last time any domestic luxury brand outsold either of those two was Packard in 1949.

Of course, Lexus and the Germans are still on top, but Tesla is growing quite rapidly. Within a few years, they could well be in striking distance of #3, if not higher.
