Tesla Hits A Historic Milestone By Building Its 1 Millionth Vehicle And It’s A Model Y

It took eight years for Tesla to build 1 million cars. Reaching 2 million may require only two more years.

  • It’s fitting that the millionth Tesla should be a Model Y which is expected to be its most popular vehicle.
  • Production at the two factories, Fremont and Giga Shanghai, has made this possible.
  • Also, we have the Tesla Model Y dimensions.

It was late last night that Tesla Boss Elon Musk tweeted a big congratulations to his entire Tesla team on making their 1,000,000th car. It will have taken eight years, from the Roadster, the Model S, the Model X, Model 3 and now, the Model Y to hit this milestone. And although Tesla has countless fans, the tweet did reveal that there are still haters out there.

Despite some, or much, criticism, Tesla is still well ahead of the competition when it comes to EV technologies. If production capabilities and demand hold up, by some estimates, Tesla could reach 2 million units in only a few years, or possibly as early as 2021. The Tesla Model Y is the vehicle that could make it happen.

The new Model Y’s dimensions were leaked recently and here’s an idea of its size. Overall, it’s footprint resembles that of a 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe. Here are some numbers (Santa Fe / Model Y):

Overall length: 4,770 mm / 4,750 mm

Overall width:  1,890 mm / 1,921 mm

Overall height: 1,705 mm / 1,624 mm (roof rack rails included for the Hyundai)
