How Many Electric Vehicles Has Tesla Produced in 12 Years

Tesla has announced that it has released its 1,000,000th electric vehicle, becoming the first automaker to reach this milestone.

Just a few years ago, many people did not believe that Tesla could produce EVs in large volumes, but the automaker managed to release 3 models: the Model S, Model X and Model 3.

Now, Elon Musk is going to release the Model Y, Tesla’s fourth electric car, which is jubilee for the company. Musk recently twitted that Tesla had released its 1,000,000th car and published a photo of the Model Y and the team who had designed it. No other automaker has achieved this volume in the production of electric passenger cars with a large power reserve. The new milestone also points to significant output achieved in the first quarter of 2020.

The only automaker that can compete with the American giant is China-based BYD, whose number of electric cars reaches 787,150 copies to date. It is also important to note that BYD's total sales also include hybrid cars (PHEV), while Tesla only produces EVs. Tesla's production capacity also increased in 2020 thanks to the Gigafactory Shanghai, Tesla's second factory by production volume in the world. The automaker plans to reach an annual production volume of 150,000 electric vehicles per factory. Combined with the Fremont factory, which should have a capacity of more than 500,000 vehicles by the end of the year, Tesla should have an annual production capacity of 650,000 vehicles. Based on last year's calculations and new data on Tesla's million-car fleet, this means that the company's current production capacity is about 40,000 EVs per month.
