More than 4 million of Tesla’s electric cars are on the road

Tesla CEO himself, Elon Musk, announced this feat during the last edition of Investor Day

Tesla is the world’s number one manufacturer of electric cars and the mirror in which all brands want to look at themselves, there is no doubt about this. And it is that the North American firm does not cease in its collection of milestones with overwhelming numbers that nobody, in their right mind, would have imagined seeing just a few years ago. The factories continue to present manufacturing records, which has been a crucial factor in reaching the magical figure of 4 million electric models produced worldwide.

To put it in context, Tesla needed 12 years of work to achieve its first million electric cars manufactured, a figure it did at the beginning of the last year 2020. Just three years later, Elon Musk’s firm has already multiplied that amount several times. As a comparison, to go from the third to the fourth million units the delay was barely 7 months. Something that only enhances the history and depth of the company itself.

The 4 millionths Tesla has been manufactured at the Gigafactory in Austin, Texas, one of the most relevant for the North American company, along with the one based in Berlin, Germany, and the one in Shanghai, China. Currently, Tesla’s production capacity is around two million vehicles per year, so reaching a million more units will only be a matter of months.

However, the future expectations for Tesla do not end there, since the objectives speak of being able to obtain an annual production figure of 20 million electric cars. For this, Elon Musk himself, stated the last year 2022 during a conference, that approximately 12 fully operational Gigafactories around the world will be necessary.


In recent weeks, the possibility of Tesla installing its next Gigafactory in Mexico has been rumored, something that has ended up being officially confirmed during the last Investor Day. The North American manufacturer is expected to unveil new locations for its factories that will be built shortly. Rumors have pointed in recent months to a second plant for China, another for Europe, Canada, or Southeast Asia; In any case, there is still no official confirmation in this regard.

The future of Tesla’s range of electric models looks quite promising. Soon, they will start manufacturing the long-awaited Tesla Cybertruck and the expansion of the Tesla Semi; they will also give the green light to the renewal of the Tesla Model 3 and the Tesla Model Y (under the name of Project Juniper ). Subsequently, new models of a more affordable cut will arrive, and of which they aspire to produce up to 700 million units per year, which are not yet known a specific name or date of arrival on the market.
