Tesla has achieved an impressive milestone. The firm officially recorded the sale of one million cars in Europe, a journey that started in 2009.

The starting point was with the limited deliveries of Tesla's first Roadster. In 2012, Tesla added Model S to its roster, followed by Model X in 2015. Despite these additions, neither managed to achieve impressive sales.

A significant shift occurred in 2016 with the introduction of the more affordable Model 3. Fast-forward to four years later, the even more popular crossover, Model Y, joined the lineup. These two models have undeniably influenced Tesla's achievements in Europe in recent years.

In 2022, the American carmaker sold 232,066 units in Europe, with as many as 137,052 being the Model Y. The Model 3 garnered 91,475 customers. However, this dominance might soon shift as the refreshed version of Model 3 hits the market.

Only time will tell if the revamped version will draw more customers to Tesla’s showrooms. But one thing is clear - reaching the next million sales will not take nearly as long.
