Tesla built its 5 millionth car, achieving a production increase of 1 million units in just 6 months. The pace of the company's production growth is impressive and the goal of producing 2 million cars this year alone seems to be achievable.
Tesla has come a long way to success. Through its ups and downs, the company has become the automotive industry's greatest success story to date. On September 16, Tesla reached another milestone: it produced its 5 millionth vehicle. The completion of production of the anniversary car was announced by Tesla's official X account.
This important milestone for the young company was made possible by the tireless work of the Tesla team, led by talented and dedicated leadership. The company produced its millionth vehicle in March 2020, meaning it took it 12 and a half years to reach this. Now, Tesla has four car manufacturing factories around the world and is constantly increasing production at them.
In August 2022, Tesla announced it had produced its 3 millionth vehicle thanks to its factories: Fremont, Giga Shanghai, Giga Berlin, and Giga Texas. In just over 7 months, the company reached a new milestone of 4 million vehicles. Now, just six months later, the manufacturer is celebrating the production of its 5 millionth vehicle.

Tesla's goal is to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy, and the company continues to remain true to this, no matter what. The manufacturer will soon begin construction of a fifth electric vehicle factory, in Mexico, with others to follow in countries around the world. Tesla aims to produce 20 million vehicles per year by 2030, and with the help of the new vehicle platform, this will become a reality. In the meantime, for 2023, the company has planned to deliver 1.8 million cars, but it seems that even 2 million is achievable, given the pace of production ramp-up.
