A U.K. price-comparison website, used Google search data to determine the most-searched-for electric car in the world – and the Tesla Model 3 came out on top.
The Nissan Leaf took second place, at 16.1 percent, followed by the Tesla Model S and Model X. The only other models with significant search traffic were the BMW i3 and Renault Zoe.
The Nissan Leaf earned that distinction in Russia, while the Tesla Model S got the most search traffic in Mexico and Argentina.
The BMW i3 was the most-searched model in Japan, for example, while the BMW was outpaced by the Tesla Model 3 in its home country of Germany.
The Tesla Model 3 still has a long way to go before it catches up to the Nissan Leaf, which remains the bestselling electric car in history.
The Jaguar I-Pace and Audi E-Tron recently arrived to challenge the Model X, while the Porsche Taycan will soon do battle with the Model 3.
General Motors, Ford, and Volkswagen have ambitious plans to launch lower-priced electric vehicles, and some automakers could also expand availability of existing electric models, giving carbuyers even more choices.
