Making the best-selling car in the world

An EV has never previously held the post. According to JATO,

Tesla sold 267,200 Model Ys in the first quarter, up 69% from a year prior.

The Toyota Corolla was the second-best-selling car,

selling 256,400 units globally

during the first quarter was a huge achievement for Tesla (TSLA) in its mission to hasten the adoption of EVs around the world.

The maker of electric vehicles, however, might have paid dearly in terms of lower profit margins.

In the first three months of the year, the Tesla Model Y sold the most units globally.
