Tesla Sees Record Sales As EV Interest Builds

Tesla employees say Tesla is manufacturing a high ratio of flawed parts and vehicles, leading to more rework and repairs at its factory in Fremont, Calif.

April 6, 2021—Tesla says it has delivered nearly 185,000 vehicles in the first three months of 2021, doubling its total for the same period last year, ABC News reported

This is just the latest news that signals an increased interest in electric vehicles. Within the last several months, nearly every major automaker has made EV pledges. And last week, President Biden introduced his $2 trillion infrastructure plan that would include $174 billion in EV investment. 

Tesla's increase in sales comes despite a shortage of computer chips that has hit the industry. The strong sales are also a sign that demand for the company's relatively expensive vehicles remains strong despite the pandemic.
