So Many Unsold Teslas Are Piling Up That You Can See Them From Space

Gone are the times when Tesla sold every car it could build. The company is now at the point where they have actually made too many vehicles. The automaker is obviously aware of this, which is why they’re slashing prices on popular models like the Model Y. Buyers, however, aren’t biting, which leaves the automaker with so much inventory that they’re being stored in lots that can be seen from space. In the first quarter of 2024, Tesla reported that it made 433,371 vehicles. Of those, 386,810 were actually sold. That means the automaker has an extra 46,561 vehicles it didn’t sell. This can be blamed on the overall EV sales slowdown. So where exactly are all those thousands of Teslas? Apparently, the company is storing vehicles in several areas around the country. Satellite images from St. Louis’ Chesterfield Mall shows a lot outside the mall being filled with nearly 500 cars. So, while Tesla is still selling hundreds of thousands of cars, it would seem that the brand isn’t the hot seller it used to be.
