Owning your own electric vehicle is no longer a dream for the far-off future, it is a possibility you could grab in the present.  Government initiatives and support, more charging infrastructure, the fast development of battery technology, and our own aspirations to lessen our carbon footprint are helping to push the electronic vehicle industry to new margins.

Tesla, Inc. has been leading the way in the industry since 2003 and the hype around its revolutionary products seems to get louder every day.  

Read on to find out how the latest from Tesla is shaping the industry into one that will become more accessible for everyone. 

Tesla beat second-quarter delivery estimates

July opened with great news for Tesla as recent figures show it delivered a record number of cars for the second quarter of 2023.  According to the numbers, the company delivered 466,140 vehicles from April to June, up 10% from the previous quarter, and 83% higher compared to the previous year. The handing over of vehicles even beat the average expectations of analysts polled by Refinitiv, who expected the delivery of cars to be only 445,000.

Could this mean that Tesla is on its way to delivering some of the highest number of models in the industry just like last year? It is too early to tell but here is look at how the sale of Tesla models compared to the rest in 2022.

Tesla Charging Standards in Great Demand

Collaboration in business is usually the name of the expansion game.  

Many companies are gearing up to get in on the Tesla charger action soon, with names like Ford, General Motors, and ChargePoint among the companies who have already signed up to use Tesla’s charging design over the past few weeks.  

The most recent company to get in on the action is Volkswagen AG, who is in talks to adopt its North American Charging Standard (NACS) technology.  

Not wanting to lose out on customers, car makers are looking to Tesla to take on its charging technology as the Combined Charging System (CCS) is not enough.  

Offering a combination of charging systems means more choice for the end user, which could ultimately mean more business for electric carmakers.

Tesla is the King of European Market Share for May

Tesla is expected to not only be charging the way forward for electric vehicles in the U.S. but also in Europe, as it held the largest market share in the industry since May 2023

According to JATO Dynamics new vehicle registrations came to 1,116,472 units in May 2023 - an 18% year-on-year increase – making Tesla the best performing Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) in May.  

This means Tesla’s market share in Europe for May is at 2.63%, up from a mere 0.15% a year before.

With Statista projecting that Tesla may reach the sale of 141.60k passenger vehicles in 2027 in Europe and 325.40k units in 2027 in North America, it seems Tesla may be showing no signs of slowing down for years to come.
