Tesla built its 4 millionth car, achieving a 1 million unit increase in production in just 7 months. The achievement happened at Giga Texas and was announced during Investor Day.
Tesla has come a long way to success. Having found itself on the verge of bankruptcy and death a few times, the manufacturer not only survived but also became the most striking success story in the automotive industry to date. Overcoming one obstacle after another, Tesla has reached another milestone: it has produced its 4 millionth car. The achievement of the production of the anniversary car was announced during its Investor Day.

This significant milestone for the young company was made possible by the tireless work of the Tesla team. The company produced its 1 millionth car in March 2020, which means it took 12 years for it to reach the milestone. This was a serious barrier, overcoming which, Tesla activated Plaid mode, demonstrating exponential growth.
In July 2022, the company announced that it had produced over 2 million vehicles at the Fremont factory alone. Already in August, Tesla said it had produced its 3 millionth car with the help of all factories: Fremont, Giga Shanghai, Giga Berlin, and Giga Texas. It took the company just 7 months to reach the new milestone of 4 million vehicles, which is impressive. Given the pace of production ramp-up, it is clear that in just a few months, Tesla will mark the production of its 5 millionth car.
Tesla has pulled through heroically, and shined, despite a tremendous yet harrowing journey, with many ups and downs. This struggle is likely exactly what was going to be necessary if a company were to successfully fight for a better future for our planet and our generations ahead. The company's goal is to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy, and Tesla continues to stay true to this value, despite all odds.
