BYD Auto 3 (manufacturer)
It turns out that we were early to crown the Tesla Model 3 as the sales queen in Israel in November.
The final data of the month reveal that in the last two days of the past month it was overtaken by another electric car, which is manufactured like it in China: BYD Auto 3.
The summary of the official delivery data reveals that Tesla delivered 2,300 cars in the past month, of which 16 were Model Y models, and the rest - 2,984 cars - were Model 3.
BYD, on the other hand, put 2,333 cars on the road in its first full month of delivery, all from its popular, significantly cheaper Jeep.
The Hatto is sold in a price range of NIS 156.5-165 thousand, while the Model 3 is significantly more expensive, and the price ranges from NIS 225 to 299 thousand, completely in the price range of the luxury brands.
In fact, Tesla delivered more in one month than other luxury car importers such as Volvo and Lexus will deliver during the entire year of 2022. This is
a record for delivering an electric vehicle in one month, but not a record for delivering a single vehicle.
Hyundai delivered 3,200 Ioniq models in January of this year, for example.
As expected, electric ferries in the past month recorded a record with 6,700 units hitting the road, an unprecedented market share of 30.5%, as we reported earlier this month.

According to the figures of the Ministry of Transport, which include the corresponding imports, 24,830,000 streetcars have entered Israel's roads since the beginning of this year, out of a total of 266,000 cars, so that the market share of streetcars stands at 9.3%, closer than ever to the European average.
Although BYD overtook Tesla last month, Geely continues to lead electric vehicle deliveries this year.
Beginning in 2022, 6,033 Geely Geometric C models were delivered in Israel, the only model that the manufacturer currently markets in Israel.
Tesla delivered 4,927 units of the Model 3 and Model Y, while BYD delivered 2,799 units, the vast majority of the Atto 3, and 6 units of the large 7-seat crossover Tang.

45% increase in November deliveries
November ended with a 46% increase in deliveries compared to the same month last year, thanks in large part to the large streetcar deliveries that are now arriving to preempt the doubling of the purchase tax on streetcars on January 1, to 20%.
The new delivery month reduced the drop in deliveries this year, which was around 15% throughout most of the months, to only 11.4% now.
