evNT Note:

And all this without Tesla’s new factories (Giga Texas and Giga Berlin) having started production of vehicles, something that will happen in 2022. Tesla in 2021 remained the dominant force in electric cars, and that probably won’t change in 2022 since the difference from other manufacturers that produce pure electric vehicles is very large.

The U.S. automaker came very close to the target of 1,000,000 cars for 2021 but in 2022 with the new factories as mentioned above Tesla is very likely to double production by the end of the year. What do you think, will production reach or exceed 2,000,000 vehicles? will Tesla comfortably remain the dominant force in 2022?
