The August list shows that Tesla Model Y’s sales lead is obvious, enough to lead the second place BYD Song family by 58,282 units, plus the sales of the third place Tesla Model 3, Tesla’s global sales reached 164,700 units in August, and you can feel Musk’s happiness through the screen. However, the sales of all BYD models in the list amounted to a whopping 247,171 units when aggregated, making it the top-selling brand in the world.

From the overall situation of the list, we can see that each brand’s strategy is also different: Tesla’s leading edge is still very obvious, although there are not many models, but their respective sales are very high, and the cost control is within a reasonable range, and the profit continues to go up; and BYD is to take the route of “having many children to fight”, with a large number of model styles, and although the sales volume of a single model is not too high, it is still winning the competition. Although the sales of individual models are not too high, but in full bloom, the total sales together can already grab the top of the global sales list.
