Tesla is the most popular electric car manufacturer in the world. But the plans of its CEO, Elon Musk, go far beyond that. Expectations for the Tesla Model Y for 2022 indicate this.

According to Fox Business, Elon Musk believes that the compact SUV will be the best-selling car in the world no less than in 2022. “Probably next year. I am not 100% sure next year, but I think it is likely ”, said the executive.

What does the Tesla Model Y need to be number 1 in the world?

The Toyota Corolla was the best-selling car in the world in 2019 and 2020. To have a sense, in 2019, even before the pandemic, Toyota will have managed to deliver 1.2 million units of this model. Just behind was the Ford F-Series, with 1 million units delivered.

Now, in 2021, Tesla projects a 50% growth in its production. That would allow 750,000 vehicles to be delivered this year, and predictably 1,125,000 already in 2022, according to the source.

If Toyota were to regain its normal sales, Tesla would thus have to exceed its own forecasts. In addition, it would have to dedicate most of its production to said Model Y.

On Twitter, Elon Musk clarified his statements, although he later deleted the publication. “It seems quite likely, at least based on revenue in 2022 and possibly total units in 2023,” read.

We will see if Elon Musk’s high expectations will be able to have a real fund as of next year.
