Tesla today achieved a production milestone, hitting 4 million total cars built.
The announcement was made by Tom Zhu, the corporate’s latest global production chief speaking at Investor Day.
Zhu said the accomplishment was made “early this morning” at Giga Texas.
Tesla later shared a video of the Giga Texas team celebrating:

It took Tesla 12 years to supply its first millionth automotive. But this time has been reduced to only 18 months to hit 2 million.
Tesla’s 3 million automotive took 11 months to construct, while the 4 million automotive took lower than seven months.
“Kudos to the team!” said Zhu, who also added Tesla’s Fremont factory also just hit a brand new day by day production record.
Tesla said it also built an in-house 5G private network at Giga Berlin, to learn and take care of manufacturing issues. It will soon be implemented at other Gigafactories globally.
