Elon Musk is making good on his promise to make electric vehicles desirable with the news that the Tesla Model S has become the bestselling luxury sedan in the U.S. by far. Compared to last year, Autoblog reports that third-quarter sales of the Model S have increased by 59 percent to 9,156 units. In comparison, the next bestselling luxury sedan, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, sold just over half of that figure.

In terms of the bigger picture, the Model S comprised almost one-third of U.S. luxury sedan sales in the third quarter, against such competitors as Jaguar, Maserati, Porsche and Lexus. This is certainly a positive note for Tesla, which has been criticized for its flagrant spending by investors in acquisitions such as that of solar energy provider SolarCity.
