The competition to be the most successful electric car manufacturer is closer than ever. Tesla is the queen of the market, but During the last quarter of 2023 it succumbed to BYDa Chinese brand that marketed more electric cars.

Tesla has sold more electric cars in 2023
This does not imply that in 2023 Tesla will continue to be the world leader in electric cars. In total it sold 1,808,58137.6% more than in 2022, when it sold 1,313,851, so its growth is unquestionable. It surpasses BYD, which sold 1,574,822 electric vehicles during the yearalthough its growth was also notable, with an increase of 72.8% compared to 2022. To its purely electric sales we must add those of the plug-in hybrid models, which were 1,483,084. In total it sold more than Tesla, but not in purely electric cars.
What is BYD? We previously mentioned that it is an Asian company. His full name is Build Your Dreams (BYD)which translates to “Build your dreams.” It was founded in 1995, specializing in the manufacture of rechargeable batteries, although The production of electric cars did not begin until 2003which gradually turned it into a globally successful company. Today it is one of the most important electric vehicle manufacturers in the world, to which are added its international contracts, such as the one it signed in 2016 to build electric buses for the Californian city of Los Angeles, since it also stands out for the manufacture of this type of vehicles.
In general terms we can affirm that 2023 has been a good year for Tesla, even despite the “aggression” carried out by a robot in 2021 that has been uncovered this year. His models sell well, although It remains to be seen how its most extravagant model: the Tesla Cybertruck performs on the market.. Tesla’s new vehicle will not be available on the market until 2025, but it has already been delivered to the first customers.
It is a get up electric of colossal dimensions and futuristic appearance, which already has a children’s version. It looks more like a tank than a car because its design is minimalist, both on the outside, with its metal exoskeleton, and on the inside, where its huge screens stand out. Its autonomy and speed depend on the model, since there are several depending on their traction, which range from $60,990 to $99,900. It also stands out for its amazing resistance, being able to withstand even bursts from automatic rifles, although during its presentation its window broke when a petanque ball was thrown at it.
