Tesla’s best-selling Model 3 dominated the electric-auto market in the US in
the first half of this year, according to new date from EV-Volumes.

A car thief in the United States was caught after she ran out of luck— or
battery, precisely. Kathy Sain was pursued by cops after she stole an
electric Tesla from a shopping centre parking lot in Payson, Arizona, said
Police Chief Ron Tischer.

The thief evaded spike strips but the stolen car came to a halt after it ran
out of power, The Payson Roundup reported. There is a Tesla charging station
in the shopping centre, but it is unclear if the vehicle was being charged
when it was nicked by Sain.

“Spike strips were ineffective (but the) vehicle ran out of electricity on
East Highway 260,” Tischer was quoted as saying. “The suspect refused to
exit the car and troopers and deputies were forced to break a window to get
the suspect out.”

Sain was arrested on several charges including theft, fleeing pursuing law
enforcement vehicles, criminal damage, and aggravated driving under the
influence.

Tesla’s best-selling Model 3 dominated the electric-auto market in the US in
the first half of this year, according to new date from EV-Volumes.

The electric vehicle sales analysis firm reported that out of the nearly
150,000 plug-in electric vehicles delivered in the US, 57% were Tesla
vehicles when considering plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), and 78% when considering
battery electric vehicles (BEVs) only.

Overall, the electronic vehicle market increased by 23 per cent compared to
the first half of 2018, with 72% of all plug-in sales being pure
battery-electric.
