Tesla Inc’s Model Y topped new vehicle registrations in Europe last month, according to market research data, indicating that the world’s most valuable automaker’s midsize SUV is rapidly becoming a vehicle of choice in the region.

It’s the first time Tesla’s sport utility vehicle has topped the charts in Europe, London-based JATO Dynamics said on Wednesday, as 29,367 Model Y cars were registered last month, up 227% compared to last year.

The Supermini Peugeot 208 car was in second place and Renault’s Dacia Sandero came third in the September standings.

The Model Y is one of Tesla’s most successful cars, which has produced 879,346 units so far this year, up from 906,032 units last year.

The surge in Tesla’s Model Y sales underscores its efforts to ramp up production at its factory in Berlin, Germany, which opened in March and now produces 2,000 cars a week.

Earlier this month, Tesla warned of logistical issues that could hamper near-term vehicle deliveries. (Reporting by Yuvraj Malik in Bengaluru; Editing by Arun Koyyur)
