Tesla is facing tough competition from other electric vehicle makers and the company is also under pressure to increase production. Musk has tweeted very little about Tesla since purchasing Twitter. For the last few days, he has been giving information only about the schemes related to Twitter. Twitter has also announced to charge about $8 per month for blue tick verification.

It achieved an annual growth of 266 percent by selling around 3,54,000 EVs. Tesla’s sales during this period were around 2,54,000 units.

This sales in China has increased by about 92 percent on an annual basis. Europe and America were in second and third place. This is the first time that an automobile company has overtaken Tesla in EV sales. The major reasons for the decline in Tesla sales were semiconductor shortage and the pandemic. However, the second half of this year may be better for the company.
