After an exceptional year 2022 in terms of sales for Tesla, thanks in particular to the Model Y, the American SUV has placed itself in the Top 10 best-selling cars in the world, ahead of certain emblematic vehicles. There is also a Chinese electric car, the Wuling Hongguang Mini EV.

At the moment

Last year, Tesla did not stop feeding the automotive news, in particular with several records to its credit, but also for other reasons, including, in particular, the constant increase in the prices of its models in the span of a few months .

In 2023, Tesla has put some order in its prices and these have become more “acceptable” again. This strategy should allow the US manufacturer to drive saleswhich lost steam at the end of the year after, in particular, the price increase that occurred in mid-2022.

But Tesla still performed well in 2022. The Model Y was also the best-selling new car, all engines combined, in September 2022 in Europe. But this is not his only feat of arms. Thus, according to the analysis firm focus2movementthe Model Y was also the fourth best-selling car in the world in 2022thus placing itself in front of some models that have occupied the Top 10 worldwide sales for several years.

Toyota and Ford in the lead, Tesla comes strong

As expected, and almost like every year, Toyota Corolla dominates global sales, thanks in particular to its success in Japan, but also in the United States, where the Japanese manufacturer is well established. Despite everything, fewer Corollas were sold than last year, with 1.12 million units sold, a decrease of 2.2%. But the Japanese compact is left with a comfortable mattress ahead with the second place… also occupied by a Toyota!

In fact, it is the RAV4 hybrid SUV that monopolizes the second step of the podium with 871,220 models sold worldwide, but it is also suffering, in particular, from the crisis of raw materials, with a drop in sales of 13.7%. with respect to 2021.

In third place, we find a great American truck, the Ford F-Series, which is also the best-selling model in North America, with 786,303 and a registration drop of 8.8%. However, the gradual arrival of the Ford F-150 Lightning, the 100% electric version of the namesake model, should allow the F-Series to maintain its market share.

A ranking that still raises questions

Fourthly, she is a surprise guest, since The Tesla Model Y gains 15 positions compared to 2021 and sold to 758,792 unitsan impressive increase in 88.5%. It is also the only electric model present in this ranking.

This performance will benefit from several strategic decisions made by Tesla, starting with the fact that the brand’s factories have been running at full speed to be able to break its record of one million cars delivered by the end of 2022. In total, these are then not less than 1,313,851 vehicles delivered to customers around the worldwhile in total 1,369,611 units were produced from 1is January 2022 to December 31, 2022.

If the figures from Tesla and other manufacturers seem accurate, there is still a reservation regarding this ranking, since some models seem to have been forgotten like the Wuling Hongguang Mini EV sold around 554,000 units worldwide in 2022.

A desire to forget the Chinese manufacturers? Not necessarily, since we found some models in the ranking such as the BYD Song that occupies the fourteenth place or the BYD Qin Plus that is the 26thhe. We will have to wait, therefore, for rankings of slightly better-known firms, such as JATO, to verify these figures. Last year the site Fiat World Group had published a complete and accurate ranking of the year 2021 in April 2022. Therefore, it is better to be patient. At the time, the only electric car in the top 10 was the Tesla Model 3, in ninth place. We found the Wuling Hongguang Mini EV at position 20, preceded by the Tesla Model Y at position 19.

These are the 3 manufacturers that sold the most electric cars in the world in 2022

In 2022, three car manufacturers have managed to get on the podium in electric car sales. These are Tesla, BYD and Volkswagen. But be careful, because a battle is going on in the…
