On October 21, 2021 in Miami, Florida, a Tesla Model Y electric vehicle will be showcased on a showroom floor in the Miami Design District. Tesla reported $1.6 billion in profit for July, August and September, a record for them.

One of their main goals, of course, is to replace all traditional vehicles with new zero-emission models. Until now, many drivers are now buying Tesla EVs.

This is due to the efficient improvements released by the car manufacturer, such as the advanced FSD (Full Self-Driving) function, extended driving range and other upgrades.

On the other hand, the shortage of microchips also has consequences for traditional car production. Most modern vehicle models rely on next-gen processors.

As SoC scarcity persists, traditional major automakers are struggling to meet the demands of their consumers. Meanwhile, Tesla’s EV production just keeps getting better and better.

Since the cars shipped by the EV developer generate on electric cells, their average CO2 emissions are only 30 tons per year.

This is quite low compared to the average CO2 emissions of 70 tons generated annually by traditional vehicles.

More Tesla EV units are coming

As demand for Tesla’s electric car models grows, the automaker is ramping up production and development efforts.

Reuters reported that Tesla is now exporting its first Shanghai-produced vehicles after the Giga Shanghai reopens.

This is a major issue as Tesla’s Gigafactory in the Asian country has been experiencing several problems due to government lockdowns.

On May 13, Tesla announced it was starting to ship about 4,000 vehicles. Now, the automaker plans to export more than 300,000 electric vehicles from Shanghai before the end of 2022.

Meanwhile, Elon Musk said Tesla’s global economic expansion is possible through the use of clean energy.

On the other hand, Tesla recently asked for faster Panasonic 4680 EV battery productions.
