In the third quarter this year, Tesla sold 69,925 vehicles in the US while Mercedes-Benz sold 66,542. It’s taken just eight years for Elon Musk’s upstart electric startup to topple the company that invented the car 132 years ago.

And according to Atherton Research, which compiled the report, Tesla was just 1754 shy of knocking over the other German giant, BMW. In a note to its clients, Atherton said it expected Tesla to surpass BMW in US sales in the last quarter of 2018.
