    Are Tesla owners happy about the rising price of the new Tesla since their existing Tesla is worth much more?

    Apr 01,2022 | Chloe Lacour

    My wife and I have a Tesla. I’m not particularly glad at the rising price, for several reasons:

    I have no plans to sell our car
    I wish everyone could drive a Tesla and the rising price makes it harder for people to buy one
    But it’s understandable that Tesla raised prices. Tesla is one of the very few companies that can make electric cars in any kind of large numbers; and of the companies that can do it, Tesla makes by far the best cars. As a result, most of the people who want an electric car want a Tesla. Thus demand has increased faster than supply has increased.

    Tesla will very likely almost double their production in 2022. In 2021 they produced nearly a million cars worldwide; in 2022 I believe they will produce nearly two million cars worldwide. By 2025 at the latest, I believe they will produce about four million cars worldwide per year. So, with each passing year, the supply will increase.

    Other companies will increase their production as well. Expect to see raw materials used in cars (such as lithium and nickel) increase in price due to increased demand. Tesla has already lined up long-term contracts… which other carmakers had the foresight to do that? We will find out because carmakers can only make cars when they can buy the materials they need.

    I have seen estimates that by 2030 Tesla will be making 20 million cars per year. And, some people (for example, Tony Seba) are predicting that fewer people will even bother to own cars because there will be “robotaxi” services (probably operating with Tesla cars). So by 2030 presumably there will be lots of car supply to meet demand.
