The US-based luxury automobile manufacturer, Tesla slew the first quarter of the year 2022 with a record sale of electric vehicles. This electrifying achievement was in fact contrary to the statement that the CEO and Chairman of Tesla, Elon Musk has made that due to some city global supply chain disruptions and due to the short stoppage of Tesla company’s remarkable manufacturing plant, the first quarter of 2022 will not be much favorable for Tesla in order to win profuse sales.
Tesla delivers record 310,048 vehicles globally in the first quarter
In fact, Tesla achieved the deliverance of 310,048 electric vehicles and this figure is slightly higher when compared to the sale of the previous quarter which was estimated to be 308,900. In addition, Tesla also succeeded in executing the shipment of 184,800 electric beasts and also managed well to produce a total of 305,407 electric vehicles of which 295,324 sales are bagged by the Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y, also 14,724 earned by the Model S and X. Thus, from April 2021 to March 2021, Tesla earned the sale of 1.06 million electric vehicles and this calculation of first quarter of 2022 is marking 68% year on year (YoY) hike.
However, it should be kept in mind that even this slight progress was not able to achieve by the other known automakers in the global market like Toyota as the company was marked by a 23.5% fall in North America and 26.3% in the matter value in the first quarter of 2022 while comparing with the same period of last year whereas General Motors has gained a flawless profit of $1.7 billion by the quarter ending on December 31.
Astoundingly, this remarkable achievement earned by Tesla is hailed from the backdrop of two flaws one is the supply chain issues and the other one was the closure of Tesla’s Shangai factory due to the issue of Covid. Shangai factory is the largest manufacturing plant where both Model 3 and Model Y are developed and the service was halted for two days due to the surge in Covid cases and last week due to the city-wide lockdown, still Tesla managed to cope with the tough competition. Now, Tesla is trying to fill in the flaws caused by the Shangai lockdown by the blast-off of the first European factory in Berlin, Germany, and also by the upholding of the ‘Cyber Rodeo’ that aims at commemorating the initiation of the Austin, Texas Gigafactory expected to be on April 7.
