Ο CEO by Tesla, Elon Musk, announced that the carmaker created its 1.000.000th electric car, the Model Y, and released another picture of the car and the team that built it. It is worth noting that it is the first automobile industry to do so. A few years ago, many believed that Tesla would not be able to create electric vehicles, let alone such a large number. Nevertheless, the automotive industry has managed to create 3 programs of electric vehicles: the Model S, Model X and 3, while Model Y is the fourth in a row.
No other car maker has succeeded in producing electric passenger cars. The new milestone marks a significant production achieved in the first quarter of 2020. As reported in 2019, based on data brought together by Kevin Rooke, Tesla became the world's largest EV automaker, surpassing the BYD of China. By October 2019, Tesla had released 807.954 electric vehicles, while BYD had 787.150 vehicles.
It is also important to note that the entire BYD includes hybrid sales (PHEV) plug-in while Tesla manufactures only electric vehicles. Tesla's capacity also increased in 2020 with the increase in production of Gigafactory Shanghai, the world's second-largest Tesla vehicle manufacturing plant. The automaker plans to achieve an annual output of 150.000 electric cars this year. Together with the Fremont plant, which should exceed 500.000 cars by the end of the year, Tesla should have an annual production capacity of 650.000 cars. Based on the number last year and the number they created data of the 1.000.000th car Tesla's Tesla production rate is estimated at about 40.000 electric cars per month today. At Electrek's Take, Tesla's achievement was striking, with congratulations throughout team the company's. In addition it was noted that its staff company can celebrate success and prepare for the new challenges, with the first of all going from 1.000.000 sales to 1.000.000 electric cars annually. This is the next big milestone for Tesla that according to a handful of people could be achieved in 2022.
