The Volkswagen Golf was Europe's No. 1 seller for October, ending the Tesla Model Y's one-month reign as Europe's best-seller. VW sold 17,234 units of the compact hatchback, nearly double its volume during the same month last year. The Golf was also Europe's best-selling compact through 10 months.
The Tesla Model Y slipped out of the top 50, with sales dropping to 2,887 in October from 29,720 units in September. The Model Y remained Europe's best-selling premium midsize SUV through 10 months because it has such a large lead over the rest of the field.
