Tesla manufactured nearly a million cars in 2021


Tesla is in luck after closing 2021 better than expected even within the company. And is that electric car manufacturers produced a total of 936,172 units throughout the year 2021, an increase of 87% over the previous year.

The key to Tesla’s success has been to be able to dodge the crisis caused by the shortage of semiconductor microchips that has affected many of the world’s leading manufacturers, thanks to good supply lines that have never stopped. In addition, this year the Elon Musk brand has moved its headquarters from the state of California to Texas, where it has also opened a new factory that is not yet operational, for tax and business reasons.

During the last quarter of the year Tesla manufactured and delivered more than 308,000 units, especially the Model 3 and Model Y, so that it exceeded all its previous records and the quarterly and annual expectations, which were expected to close the quarter with about 250,000 units manufactured and a year with just over 850,000.

Tesla’s production capacity, however, is limited to its two current factories, Fremont in the United States and Shanghai in China. Throughout 2022, the factories in Berlin and Texas must start operating, which must increase exponentially the productive capacity of the brand, and which must more easily meet the domestic demand of Europe and the United States. respectively.

Interestingly, the dramatic growth in Tesla’s production capacity and deliveries has been driven by demand for the Model 3 and Model Y, while that of the already classic and well-known Model S and Model X was much lower: in fact, Tesla only manufactured about 11,000 units of the two vehicles during the last quarter of 2021.
