Tesla is one of the most well known names in the modern day automotive industry. It is the leading automotive manufacturer for battery powered cars. Yes, that means zero gasoline usage. It is without question that the evil genius behind this company, Elon Musk, has done anything except the abnormal. Their brand released their first car in 2008 and today in 2020 it is one of the most popular and practical options you can get on the market. Tesla’s have entered the market from the top down as they are quickly on their way to meet the $20,000 to $30,000 price mark, but their most popular models are $35,000 and above.

The brand is most noted by their quirky leader, their long range capabilities under one singular charge, their surprising performance aspects, and their cutting edge technology. Currently, the Model S holds the record for the longest range on one charge which was 370 miles, but Elon claims 400 miles is coming soon and also claims that the coming soon 2nd gen Tesla Roadster will not only be the fastest production car, but it will also have a range of 620 miles which is absurd.

Tesla Invoiced 16,934 Million Dollars in Q2, Announced More Capacity: 1.9 Million Cars

The second quarter of 2022 will be remembered as the first time in which things did not go so well for Tesla – in a relative way -, although it was obviously due to external causes: the Shanghai Gigafactory had to close for 20 days in a row and then they had to deal with many different logistics problems, which meant that finally some 50,000 cars went out of production. Still, the company announced even more capacity: 1.9 million cars.
