The Math Behind Tesla Getting to 20 Million Vehicles Per Year

In 2014, Tesla built 35,000 vehicles. By the end of 2030, it hopes to have 20 million vehicles on the road. In just 17 years, automobile 

output has increased 571 times. If Tesla succeeds, that would be an incredible achievement. If Tesla reaches that milestone this year, even

at a run rate of 2 million vehicles annually, it is a 57-fold increase in car manufacturing over the previous ten years.In 2014, construction

began on Giga Nevada, which is currently finished and operational. Tesla also set a target of producing 500,000 vehicles by 2020, which 

was achieved with the Model 3 and Model Y. Because it had never been done before, many people believed Tesla could never attain that feat.
