Preliminary data indicates that the Tesla Model Y has passed the Toyota Corolla and Toyota RAV4 as the top selling cars by unit volume in the world on a monthly basis.
It is close in June but further increases in production will make it definitive in August, 2022.
When this is revealed in official statistics or in a clear official statement from Tesla at meetings in July or August then it could be stock and marketing catalyst. This resulted from the rise of Tesla Model Y (Shanghai, Fremont, Berlin and Austin factories) and the collapse of Toyota sales in China and the United States.
