Tesla officially entered Turkish market, the launch in India is still a long way off
The United States and China remain Tesla's largest global markets, but the company is increasingly focusing on countries with vast populations
Last year, Tesla delivered 936,000 vehicles around the world, an increase of 87 percent over its 2020 numbers. The United States and China remain the brand's largest global marketplaces, albeit in 2022, a new high-population country will contribute to the brand's sales. Tesla's entry into the Turkish car market was announced with the appointment of Kemal Geçer as general manager.
The company is building a supercharger network that will span the majority of the Balkans, including stations in Bulgaria, Serbia, Romania, and other nations in the region. There are currently no facts available about Tesla's sales ambitions in Turkey.
In 2021, Turkey sold about 4,000 electric vehicles. This index was only 1,600 automobiles in 2020. Electric vehicles registered for public use in the country are now expected to number between 7,000 and 8,000. After Tesla's formal introduction, EV demand in Turkey is projected to increase even more.
In Turkey in 2021, only combustion-powered automobiles were among the top three best-sellers. The Fiat Egea came in first, followed by the Toyota Corolla and the Renault Clio.
