In total, according to PwC’s estimates, around 220,000 new passenger cars were sold in the Czech Republic last year, the overwhelming majority of which were equipped with an internal combustion engine.

Tesla’s results were influenced by its pricing policy, when at the beginning of last year it proceeded to significantly discount the offered models, to which sooner or later other brands reacted, often with discounts in the order of hundreds of thousands of crowns.

The most popular model of the past year was the Model Y with 1,075 registrations, accounting for two-thirds of Tesla’s total registrations, followed by the Model 3 with 408 registrations, the Model S (69 cars) and the Model X (67 cars). In the last quarter of the year, the redesigned Tesla Model 3 Highland came with a better range than its predecessor, whose base price in the Czech Republic starts at CZK 1,053,990.

Despite Tesla’s significant year-on-year growth, the Škoda Enyaq became the most registered individual model with 1,442 cars sold, but thanks to the four models offered, Tesla registered the most new personal battery electric cars among the brands.

Detailed results of sales of new cars in the Czech Republic for the past year will be published by the Association of Automobile Importers on Friday.
