If March 2023 accounted for Tesla an important month, for the achievement of the 4 million cars produced from birth to date, April is even more significant because it saw the American manufacturer reach 4 million cars… delivered to customers.
According to Clean Technica calculations based on what was declared by Elon Musk's own House, the milestone would have already been exceeded at the beginning of the month, although Tesla has not yet released an official note on the matter.
The fact is that Tesla, according to the data released, would have recorded growing deliveries in as many as 11 of the last ones 12 quarters. It means that except in one case, the company's business has been driven by a continuous drive towards expansion for the last three years.
Expansion that was driven - it wasn't hard to imagine - by the two most successful models: the Model 3 and Model Y. Alone they accounted for 3,4 million sales, with Model S and Model X which, thanks to much higher list prices, together reached 600.000 units.
- Tesla Model 3: 1,9 million cars sold
- Tesla Model Y: 1,6 million cars sold
- Tesla Model S e X: 0,6 million cars sold
Will the Model Y be the best-selling of them all?
Model 3 and Model Y are not only the two best-selling Tesla models in history. They have set (and continue to set) an impressive string of records, not just in the electric car category. Considering data from 2022, for example, the Model Y was the fourth best-selling car in the world overall.
Elon Musk, in April 2021, presenting the Model Y, said that it would become the best-selling car in the world overtaking the Toyota Corolla. This is likely to happen as early as 2023.
