Things just keep getting better for Tesla Motors and their Model S electric sedan. According to CNNMoney, Tesla outsold the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the BMW 7 Series and the Audi A8 in the first quarter of 2013.

CNNMoney found out that Tesla sold a total of 4,750 units while Mercedes-Benz sold 3,077 S-Class models, BMW sold 2,338 7 Series models and Audi sold 1,462 A8 units.

Obviously one explanation for this is that the Model S starts at $69,900 while its competitors all start around $75,000 to $93,000.

Tesla has raised its Model S sales estimates for this year from 20,000 to 21,000.
