WEBFI-TECH-BREAKING! Tesla Model Y To Lead 10 Million EV Sales in 2022 Overtaking Corolla

Bloomberg research says Tesla Model Y could be one of the five best-selling cars in the world in 2022 and thus set to overtake Toyota Corolla.

Global sales of pure electric cars more than doubled in 2021 compared to the previous year. That’s according to data released on Tuesday by energy research firm BloombergNEF ahead of its upcoming 2022 market outlook. According to this, a total of around 6.6 million cars with a purely or partially electric drive were sold last year, of which a good 4.5 million only had a battery. For the new year, BNEF expects a further increase of a good 50 percent – and that the Tesla Model Y could become one of the best-selling cars ever.

10 million electric car sales in 2022.

This emerges from a newsletter with some data that BNEF sent out on Tuesday. The complete Electric Vehicle Outlook, which the market researchers regularly publish at the beginning of the year, should follow soon. Like others, they recently misjudged the past year: In January, they predicted a total of 4.4 million global electric car sales for 2021 after 3.2 million in 2020. In fact, during its course, even Tesla heard that demand was higher than expected.

In 2022, growth should continue at a more moderate pace from the much higher base, according to BNEF. For this year, the market researchers are predicting slightly more than 10 million electric car sales worldwide, i.e. a good 50 percent more, and around three quarters of them again exclusively with energy from a battery. China should also remain the leader in electric car sales again. BNEF expects a boost, especially in the last quarter, because in 2023 the electrical subsidy, which has already been reduced this year, will end completely. In the USA, the availability of electric pickups should give impetus to the comparatively underdeveloped electric car market.

The Tesla Cybertruck is unlikely to contribute to this in 2022 because according to Elon Musk, series production will probably not start until the following year. But BNEF has as much confidence in another Tesla model for this year as the CEO himself: In 2022, the Model Y will probably be the world’s best-selling car, he said in a telephone conference last April. Market researchers don’t want to go that far. But they predict 800,000 sales of the Tesla crossover this year. This will probably make it the best-selling electric car in the world and at the same time make it into the global top 5 of all cars.

Tesla Model Y is set to overtake Corolla.

At the top was the Toyota Corolla with a good 1.1 million units sold in 2021. Even with 800,000 Model Y, there would still be a good deal missing. The Tesla boss himself later put his conference statement on the bestseller title into perspective on Twitter, stating that for 2022 it was related to sales, not to the number of units. In view of the price difference between the Model Y and the Corolla, this could actually work as early as this year if the BNEF forecast is correct or too low again. According to CEO Musk, Tesla should then also reach the highest number of units in 2023.

    Hope for, but can they produce the number in 2022?

  • michelcote on January 26, 2022

    This mean around 16% market share for Tesla in 2022

  • tommays56 on January 26, 2022

    I hope they our successful BUT even if each plant produces over 1 million units per year I think it will take many more years to secure the supply chain materials required to make so many battery’s and EV specific components

  • mfhberg on January 26, 2022

    Yes, Model Y should be #1 by revenue this year and #1 by total sold next year. However if the lower priced Tesla model gets into production it will rapidly overtake everything in it's path.

  • Tho Nguyen on January 26, 2022

    Tesla will be the only EV producer that can mass produce at this pace. EV demand will be huge especially if EV drop in price as volume increase

  • Ren Law on January 26, 2022

    How to produce 10 million Model Y in a year?????? Even with 2 new Giga Factory its not possible.

  • Charles Musgrave on January 26, 2022

    Your comments about naming it Model Q building on other people's misfortunes is misguided. TSLAQ's whole existence is aimed at betting against Tesla and spreading misinformation to manipulate stock prices to hurt $TSLA investors who are supporting the effort towards a sustainable future. Naming the Q would be a fun jab, just like Tesla Short Shorts.

  • G Syn on January 26, 2022

    10 million model Y in 2022? manufacturing capacity will not reach 3 million for all models together.

  • carholic1336 on January 26, 2022

    Are you drunk mate!? No vehicle is going to overtake a Corolla in terms of sales anytime soon.

  • Myron P on January 26, 2022

    Who's producing 10 million EV's.In the best case , Tesla might only produce 2 million,where does the other 8 million come from?

  • Paul Hill on January 26, 2022

    Model Y can be the highest selling car in the world if we can only produce them fast enough… Will someone tell the German government that its better for them to produce and export cars rather than importing them from China!!!

  • dugnology on January 26, 2022

    The title is misleading. The model Y is not going to produce 10 million cars. It will be the leading car selling of all 10 million EV (that includes hybrids). More like 2 million. Totally doable at the end of 2022 on a year to year basis with Berlin, Austin and Shanghai II online.

  • Mola Doggle on January 26, 2022

    Tesla cannot make 2 million care a year how can they sell 10 million in 2022 seems impossible

  • Ronald Douglas on January 26, 2022

    BYD battery in a Tesla? never in a million years.

  • Robert Smith on January 26, 2022

    I believe Armen stated "800,000 model Y's"

  • Fernando Moreira on January 26, 2022

    What he means is 10M global EV sales. And Model Y should lead (best selling among those 10M total)

  • clavo on January 26, 2022

    Your headlines are over-selling and over-promising what the body of the video delivers. This will lose subscribers in the medium run. Sensational titling is not wise for a intelligent audience. It is a little insulting. Hope you can return to reasonable summary instead of exaggeration in the title.

  • Beast on January 26, 2022

    To anyone following Tesla closely, this is not a surprise.

  • pharmkid02 on January 26, 2022

    Why model 2 when Tesla can’t even keep up with current demand?

  • UnTwisted Truth on January 26, 2022

    Looking to move back East from Midwest next year. How do you like NC?

  • Dean McManis on January 26, 2022

    It is good that EV sales will improve, as expected. And also good that Tesla's Model Y and Model 3 will help lead that charge! 😁⚡

  • Thys Roes on January 26, 2022

    The title is unclear. – just leave the '10 million' out and it's better.

  • The Electric Man on January 26, 2022

  • emayhand on January 26, 2022

    I’m starting to get Tesla fatigue. Elon on these earnings call is just hard to listen to.

    As we saw rumors are a dime a dozen. I said that Tesla wouldn't announce a new smaller budget vehicle. It simply doesn't make sense to use limited batteries and chips to produce a car that sells for less and has less profit. I know that Tesla would love to but it's a real profit buster. Folks just don't think about the chips and such needed being the same chips that would build a car selling at over two times as much. Same for batteries. Why put batteries that cost the same money into cars that sell for more and make much bigger profits? It seems that folks just don't get it. Tesla will come out with a cheaper car when it doesn't crash his bottom line.

  • Charles Jutkins on January 28, 2022

    Hmm did this include all the Golf Carts produced with a battery.

  • Charles Jutkins on February 14, 2022

    4 would be a stretch with 2 coming from Tesla
