Has Tesla Sold a Lot Of Cars?

(CTN News) – As of October 2022, Tesla, the Texas-based EV automaker, had sold more than 3 million units worldwide. The company has found that production, delivery and acquisition of parts is a lot simpler with three “gigafactories” on three different continents making their own lithium-ion batteries.

First vehicle, the Lotus-inspired Roadster, was first produced in 2008. The limited production model was limited to 2,500 units.

Tesla was a sleepy EV company back then – it wasn’t until 2012 with the Model S that it became a household name. Tesla sold 3,000 Model S units in its first year.

The following year, that number rose to 22,477. An EV that is sleek, efficient, and accessible was in high demand. Model S sales exceeded 30,000 in 2014.

A Chinese factory was built in 2019, sensing the Model S’ global potential overseas. Since opening day, sales have been a few units short of a million. Tesla has sold more than 900,000 cars in just three quarters. Over 930,000 last year.

Tesla SUVs

2015 marked the introduction of  Model X luxury SUV. Due to the vehicle’s high price and limited availability, sales were minimal until 2017.

In response to customer demand for a more mainstream SUV, Tesla introduced the Model Y SUV. Since its release in 2020, it has surpassed the Model X in popularity and sales.

The demand for Model Ys is higher than what can supply even at the gigafactories in Berlin and Texas.

Elon Musk recently announced some suspension changes for the Model Y to make it more comfortable without compromising performance. Standard equipment on any Model Y built after October 11, 2022.

Sales rise.

With 396,069 units sold so far this year, Tesla has seen an incredible spike in American sales. This is an increase from last year’s 301,998 sales, showing Americans’ desire for electric vehicles. The sale of I.C.E. is being considered by more and more governments, including the U.S.

After Musk announced that a smaller, more affordable model is currently in development, is sure to see yet another spike in sales.

Tesla, with its Supercharging stations and Semi truck on the way and the Cyber truck reportedly coming soon, is right where other companies ache to be.

The EV lap record remains undefeated thanks to Unplugged Performance and Randy Probst. Track days at various racetracks have seen more Tesla models since the public feud.

Even the Model Y with its weight is capable of running alongside the fastest internal combustion engines, with 100% torque at zero mph.
