Tesla sets a sales record: 241,300 vehicles in the quarter

There is still no detailed report on sales of Tesla cars in the third quarter of this year, but there is the most important data: for three months, from July to September of this year, the company sold 241,300 vehicles. This record is even more impressive when you take into account the overall decline in market sales due to the shortage of chips.

Tesla sets a sales record: 241,300 vehicles in the quarter

For comparison, Tesla sold 367,500 electric vehicles for the whole of 2019. And now – 241,300 in just one quarter. And here is another comparison, with a company that produces “traditional” cars, that is, mainly with internal combustion engines. General Motors said Friday morning that it sold 446,997 vehicles in the third quarter, down 33% from the same period last year. At the same time, in terms of the scale of production, warehouse, human, dealer and other resources, GM with all its brands is not comparable to Tesla.

The reason for Tesla’s success in this volatile time lies precisely in its fairly simple structure, which quickly adapts to changing market conditions. When supply problems began, Tesla quickly switched to other manufacturers and literally rewrote the software on the fly so that the new chips worked the same as those that had been shipped before.
