At the top of the hierarchy
Contrary to General Motors or Stellantis, Tesla is a hit and is not forced. The other brands mentioned will have to close factories for lack of electronic chips.

As a reminder, this number rose to 201,250 cars in the second half and 185,000 in the first three months of the year.
