Tesla recently saw its factory in Fremont, Calif., pass a major milestone. Indeed, the location produced the two millionth vehicle in its history.
The product in question happened to be a Model 3, but the factory also manufactures the Model Y, Model S and Model X.
If we were talking a few years ago about the production challenges that Tesla was facing, we can say that they were overcome brilliantly. In total since its inception, Tesla has produced and delivered some 2.9 million vehicles worldwide. Soon, you guessed it, we will talk about the production of the model numbered 3,000,000.
In connection with this last figure, the Insideevs site shares an interesting piece of data, namely the distribution of the production of the Model 3 and Model Y (2,336,365), as well as the Model S and Model X (564,328).

The two millionth vehicle produced at the Fremont plant, a Model 3
Tesla’s total annual production is now over one million units, according to year-to-date numbers. Better still, in the past 12 months, Tesla has delivered more than 1.1 million vehicles to its customers, despite a rocky start for everyone in 2022.
For the moment, Tesla remains the main global player for the sale of electric vehicles, ahead of BYD and Volkswagen.
With two more factories – in Germany and Texas – Tesla may well continue its upward trend, but its competitors are arming themselves with the announcement of several new models.
Volkswagen has already announced that it intends to sell more electric vehicles than Tesla in the near future, while GM has said it is to overtake the Californian firm from 2025.
If Tesla wants to stay in the race, it will take other models, including the Cybertruck it has been promising for some time now.
One thing is certain, the fight promises to be interesting.
