Tesla Motors (TSLA +2.7%) sold about 1.6K Model S vehicles in the U.S. during March to show just a slight increase over the sales tally for February, according to AutoData Corp.

Barclays is out with a note to clients indicating it believes demand in the U.S. has plateaued. Q1 Y/Y unit sales growth of just 1% from Tesla backs up Barclays' claim.

The EV automaker is looking to the Model X introduction to be the main driver for mass market sales.
