Compared to the second quarter of last year, when car sales worldwide were negatively affected by the coronavirus pandemic, sales more than doubled.
Total sales of the more expensive Model S and Model X fell to 1,890 from April to June in April to June in the previous quarter. However, this decline was offset by growth in sales of the cheaper Model 3 sedans of the Model Y crossover, which Tesla sold 199,360
Total production rose 14 percent in the second quarter compared to the previous three months to a record 206,241 vehicles. Most were Model 3 and Model Y cars
Tesla is now by far the most valuable car company in the world. However, its production volume is only a small part compared to the production of flagship traditional cars, such as the German concern Volkswagen.
