Tesla new models 2022
Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced at the presentation of the annual figures that we do not have to count on new models from the brand this year. With only four models, of which only two are being produced in large numbers, you would say that Tesla is going to have a hard time. Nevertheless, 2022 could turn out to be a positive key year. We explain how that works below.
The fact that new models have been discontinued means another postponement for the Cybertruck presented in November 2019 . The Semi-truck and the Tesla Roadster , both first shown in 2017, are also still waiting. Finally, the arrival of the long-awaited affordable Tesla, a model that Musk first spoke about in 2020, is also not forthcoming.
Because old-timers Tesla Model S and Model X are slowly being delivered after a thorough refurbishment and ditto changes to the production lines, the well-known Model 3 and the Model Y , new for Europe , are the cork on which Tesla floats.
Fortunately for the brand, those cars sell like hot cakes, which resulted in record sales last year. In fact, 29 percent of all electric cars sold worldwide were Teslas by 2021.
For Tesla it is therefore important to build as many copies of the Model 3 and Model Y as possible. The brand will therefore take steps in this direction this year. In the coming weeks, two completely new factories will be put into operation: one near Berlin, the other in the US state of Texas.
The first Model Y built there will be handed over in Germany on Tuesday. A large barbecue at the Texas factory will kick off the brand’s activities there on 7 April.

Easier and faster delivery of Teslas‘
Although the new factories will not be running at full speed immediately, Tesla’s production capacity will double in one fell swoop to more than two million units on an annual basis. Consumers can benefit from this, insiders say.
“Tesla will in any case benefit from its new factories. It gives the brand air with regard to the sometimes unclear delivery times,” says Roy Kleijwegt, journalist at AutoWeek .
Rico Luman, senior economist at think tank ING Think agrees. “The new production locations are not only necessary for growth, but also to be able to deliver to consumers more easily and faster.
At the moment, the challenge for the automotive sector is still being able to build, not to sell. That does not only apply. for Tesla, but also for other automakers.”
“Tesla is far from giving full throttle” (Tesla new models 2022)
Moreover, Tesla can now start looking at markets that have not yet been really exploited, say Luman and Kleijwegt. “With the fast route to fully electric in the period 2030-2035, there is still a lot of potential in Europe,” says Luman. “Tesla is far from giving full throttle everywhere,” adds Kleijwegt.
Indeed, where the Netherlands seems tired of Tesla, Tesla sells better than ever outside our national borders. Lower prices may convince Dutch consumers.
“For the Netherlands, delivery times will be shorter if the factory in Germany is operational. This can also have a favorable effect on the price.
In recent years, it has also been shown that Tesla is not afraid to implement (relatively) significant price reductions if they see that the question is what decreases or if more cars can be delivered,” says Kleijwegt.
Much will depend on suppliers
There is also good news for customers who found the finish of Tesla’s substandard. “According to Tesla, the quality of the Model Y to be built in Germany will be much higher than the ‘Chinese’ versions that are currently being delivered.
With the increasing competition, that can’t hurt,” concludes Kleijwegt.
“Having a manufacturing facility in Europe improves the overall service to European customers, which is important without an extensive service network,” said Luman, adding that the new factories don’t necessarily mean Tesla can work miracles now.
“The order books are well filled. So the question is how fast Tesla production can grow. That is again a challenge this year due to the persistent shortages in the production chain.
In addition to chips, there is now also a shortage of cables due to the war in Ukraine. Much will depend on the network of suppliers Tesla is building for the new stronghold.”
