Because of the reduction in tax credit, I would think almost anyone who was thinking of buying a Tesla would have bought in December, right? Sales of almost all EVs go way down in January because people don't want to wait an extra year for the tax credit. Combine this with the tax credit reduction and sales should plummet in January.
For example, from December 2017 to January 2018 sales were:
Model S; 4975 down to 800
Model X; 3300 down to 700
I'm guessing Jan 2019 will be:
Model S; 350
Model X; 400
Model 3; 4000
I guess non-US sales will be way up to try and help with the lull. Did you purchase in January? Explain why. Thanks!
