Stockport has been crowned as the UK’s capital of Tesla’s (TSLA), having more licensed vehicles of the electric car brand than any other local authority in Britain.

According to new DVLA research by car leasing comparison website LeaseLoco, the town in Greater Manchester has a total of 2,257 licensed Teslas, more than in Wales (690) and almost as many as the whole of Scotland (2,367).


LeaseLoco submitted a Freedom of Information (FOI) request to the DVLA , asking for data on the number of licensed Teslas, and the location of where they were licensed.

The results showed that of the 41,314 licensed Tesla cars across England, Scotland and Wales, six other local authorities have more than 1,000 registered Teslas.

Seizing the silver medal was Hertfordshire at 1,946, with Leeds (1,833), Swindon (1,397), and Hillingdon (1,263) making up the top five.

Surrey and Milton Keynes both had more than 1,000 licensed Tesla vehicles, with 1,137 and 1,049 respectively. Watford (958), Hampshire (909) and Essex (827) rounded off the top 10 local authorities.

The regional data showed that a quarter of licensed Teslas — or 10,207 — were in the South East of England, followed by London with 6,810, while there were only 487 in the North East. West Somerset had the fewest number of Teslas, with just five.

Across London boroughs, Hillingdon had more than twice as many licensed Teslas as the next borough, Westminster (514). Barking & Dagenham (26) has the lowest number.

Top 10 Tesla hotspots:

  1. Stockport - 2,257
  2. Hertfordshire 1,946
  3. Leeds - 1,833
  4. Swindon - 1,397
  5. Hillingdon - 1,263
  6. Surrey - 1,137
  7. Milton Keynes - 1,049
  8. Watford - 958
  9. Hampshire - 909
  10. Essex - 827

These numbers are either out of date or just made up.

A quick search on howmanyleft shows almost 9,500 Model 3 LR are on the road, which already accounts for all the cars in the "research".

The information is representative of regional distribution.

Obviously all published research data is historical. It has to be collected, analysed, documented, written up in an article and then published🥴

The same applies with the ...

... their data is produced quarterly.



Is there a major leasing company in Stockport?
I don't know, but there is a Tesla showroom/service centre there.

Confused.
The 41,314 figure is the number of UK licensed Tesla at end of 2020Q3, not 5 years ago. Of these 25,574 are Model 3 and the LR is the most popular (9,446)...
Data including 2020Q4 figures was only published 13/05/21, so it's not surprising an FOI request was based on the older 2020Q3 data...

This is just bollocks, as it only reflects the locations of Tesla delivery centres, and has no bearing on where the owners live. Take mine, for example. It will show as being "Hillingdon" simply because the nearest Tesla delivery outlet to me, here in West Wiltshire, happened to be West Drayton. So my car was shown as registered in "Hillingdon" yet was actually located around 90 miles away. The same goes for all the other stats, as Tesla have may be dozen delivery centres across the whole of the UK. People often had to travel well over 100 miles to collect their new cars and the cars are always registered at the delivery centre address, with no exceptions, as Tesla refuse to deal with any other type of registration, including private number transfers.
