Tesla Motors has announced its year-to-date sales figures for 2015, recording 10,030 total global sales of its Model S all-electric sedan in the first quarter of this year.

It's a solid result for the American manufacturer, especially considering its single-model vehicle range and status as a relative newcomer to the luxury segment.

However Tesla doesn't go into any details about regional sales, and the company's local marketing and communications manager Heath Walker declined to discuss how many cars have been sold in Australia thus far.

But in a recent conference call to announce the Model S' new Range Assurance feature, Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk said that Australian sales were tracking well.

"Our sales of Model S in Australia have been surprisingly good," he said. "I’ve been pretty happy with our progress there."

"Its seems Australians really do like the Model S quite a bit, and as a result we’re putting a significant investment in Superchargers in Australia."

At current rates Tesla should comfortably achieve 40,000 global sales by the end of the year, but the arrival of the much-anticipated Model X SUV (above) around the middle of 2015 is expected to deliver a sizable sales boost for the brand.

And it will need to be a sizable boost, especially if predictions by independent analysts of total annual sales of 500,000 are to achieved.

Given the past quarter's result of 10,030 units, sales growth will need to be almost exponential from this point forward.
