Tesla, the electric carmaker, sold 201,250 cars in the second quarter, twice as many as in the same period a year ago, the company said on Friday, suggesting that it was not as badly affected by a global chip shortage that has limited the production of other automakers.
The company sold nearly 91,000 cars in the second quarter of 2020 when auto sales around the world were kept low by the pandemic. The company delivered nearly 185,000 cars in the first three months of this year.
“Our teams have done an outstanding job navigating through global supply chain and logistics challenges,” the company said in a statement.
