The American brand posted a record number of sales in the third quarter of 2022 and is approaching the total number of cars sold last year.
During this third quarter of 2022, Tesla sold 343,830 vehicles what brings the total for 2022 to 929,910 carsalmost as many as in 2021 (936,172) when we are only in October.
This quarter could have been even better for Tesla if the brand had been able to deliver all the vehicles manufactured (365,923) but persistent delivery problems at the manufacturer.
Model 3 and Y headlining
The best-selling models are the Model 3 and Model Y, which represent 345,988 cars in total production for the quarter. Performance that should increase further when we know that deliveries of the Model Y Propulsion are about to begin. The total for 2022 will therefore easily exceed one million sales with a fourth quarter which could equal or even exceed the third.
At the same time, Tesla announced that more than 10,000 superchargers were now available in Europe (35,000 worldwide, 3,500 stations), spread over more than 30 countries, including France, which has 1,500 superchargers (125 stations).
