The leading American automaker indicated it took 14 years to reach 1 million unit sales since the first Roadster’s delivery in the region.
“14 years ago, we delivered the first Tesla Roadster to customers in Europe. Today, we hit 1 million Tesla vehicles on the road across Europe.”
Tesla currently offers the S3XY lineup in Europe, according to Tesla North. It imports the Model 3 from the Gigafactory Shanghai in China, while the Model S and Model X come from the Fremont factory in California.
On the other hand, the Model Y undergoes local production in Gigafactory Berlin.
“Berlin and Austin factory, the current priority is actually maximizing the output from our existing lines by laser-focusing on efficiency improvements. As always, maintaining a high quality and reducing per unit cost will be as critical as growing the production volume.”
Tesla Model Y leads
Tesla’s all-electric crossover Model Y continues to dominate the European automotive market in the January to August 2023 period.
EV-a2z previously reported that the Tesla Model Y sold 19,725 units in the region in August alone. It demonstrated an 189% YoY increase from just 6,817 units in 2022.
Year to date, its sales reached 151,191 units. It beat the Dacia Sandero’s sales of 148,080 units.
Tesla confirmed plans to start the Cybertruck’s customer deliveries on November 30. However, its European launch may not occur early as Tesla Chief Musk already warned that its production ramp-up will take longer due to its design complexity.
