The Tesla Model Y electric crossover is the best-selling electric vehicle in the world, but it could soon be the best-selling passenger car in all categories.
As early as 2023, it could overtake the Toyota Corolla and become the first electric vehicle in history to top the list of the best-selling passenger cars in the world.
This is reported by Electrek with reference to the head of Tesla, Elon Musk, who at the annual meeting of Tesla shareholders announced that the Tesla Model Y is on its way to becoming the best-selling car in the world. He noted that the electric crossover will become the best-selling car in the world by revenue this year. The company also expects it to become the best-selling car next year once Tesla ramps up production at Gigafactory Texas and Gigafactory Berlin.
Currently, the best-selling car in the world is the Toyota Corolla, with annual sales of about 1,150,000 vehicles.
It is worth recalling that Chinese BYD competes with Tesla, which completely abandoned the production of cars with internal combustion engines and sold more than 641 thousand electric vehicles in the first half of 2022.
