Tesla has never delivered so many electric cars as in recent months. The American car manufacturer led by the much-discussed billionaire Elon Musk reports that more than 405,000 new Teslas were owned in the last quarter of 2022. That was well below analysts’ expectations. Experts consulted by the Bloomberg news agency had expected an average of almost 421,000 deliveries. Tesla is struggling with high inflation, rising interest rates and lower production in China, among other things. The figures from the Austin-based market leader are seen as a good indicator of overall demand for electric cars. Tesla is largest in the United States and China. Tesla produced just under 440,000 cars from October through December. The Model 3 and Model Y are the brand’s flagship vehicles. (AP)
