Tesla Inc.’s Model 3 was Singapore’s top-selling sedan for the first time in September, as Elon Musk’s electric vehicle pioneer starts to make inroads in the world’s most expensive auto market.

New registrations of Teslas surged 89% to 312 last month versus August, according to Land Transport Authority data released Friday. Through the first nine months of the year, 517 Teslas were registered in the island city.

The U.S. company started selling its Model 3 in Singapore in February when it opened a dedicated web portal on the island. Singapore is providing incentives to encourage drivers to buy environmentally-friendly cars as it aims to reach net zero emissions as soon as viable.
