Strong electric vehicle market

Tesla generated just under 12.7 billion U.S. dollars in revenue in the United States alone in the fiscal year of 2019. The demand for electric vehicles is projected to rise over the next two decades with worldwide revenues estimated to grow from 119 billion U.S. dollars in 2017 to reach 567 billion U.S. dollars in 2025. Similarly, the number of environmentally-friendly cars in use, including both the hybrid and battery electric vehicles, reached around 4.8 million units in 2019.
