Elon Musk almost fulfilled his promise, which he made last year – it was that Tesla would sell 500 thousand electric cars in a year. As a result, the company sold 499,550 cars.
At the same time, Tesla produced 509,737 cars during the year, of which 179.7 thousand cars were assembled in the last quarter. Most of them made up the new Model 3 and Model Y models, and only 54.8 thousand were the early Model S and Model X electric cars.
It is worth noting that many aspects of life have been affected by the pandemic this year. This also applies to Tesla, although the company has managed to produce even more vehicles. Unsold 450 pieces can be associated with the coronavirus.
In any case, Tesla managed to end the year in positive territory for the first time. Over the past 2020, Tesla’s capitalization has grown 8.4 times and is $ 668.9 billion.
