Tesla Celebrates Production of 5 Millionth Electric Car

Tesla has reached a major milestone by producing its 5 millionth electric car this week. This achievement is a testament to the success and viability of electric vehicles, despite initial doubts from critics within the auto industry. It’s worth noting that just a few years ago, many believed Tesla would never be able to expand beyond being a niche manufacturer.

It took Tesla 12 years to build its first million vehicles, but the subsequent four million were produced in just three years. This rapid increase in production capacity demonstrates the company’s commitment to scaling its operations and meeting the growing demand for electric vehicles.

The announcement of the 5 millionth car came only six months after Tesla celebrated the production of its 4 millionth electric car. This quick turnaround reflects the company’s ability to continuously improve its manufacturing processes and meet its ambitious production targets.

Tesla’s annual installed production capacity is as follows:

– California (Model S / Model X): 100,000 units
– California (Model 3 / Model Y): 550,000 units
– Shanghai (Model 3 / Model Y): over 750,000 units
– Berlin (Model Y): 375,000 units
– Texas (Model Y): over 250,000 units
– Cybertruck: in tooling phase
– Nevada (Tesla Semi): pilot production
– Various (Next Gen Platform): in development
– Roadster: in development

Despite the upcoming factory upgrades and a temporary decrease in production capacity in Q3, Tesla remains committed to expanding its manufacturing capabilities. The company is preparing to start production of the highly anticipated Cybertruck, which will add to its already impressive production numbers.

Overall, reaching the milestone of 5 million electric cars is a noteworthy achievement for Tesla. It is a testament to the company’s dedication to advancing clean transportation and pushing the boundaries of electric vehicle technology. With ongoing innovations and expansion plans, Tesla is poised to continue leading the electric vehicle revolution.
