In 2023, CNN asked an important question: Why was Tesla continuing to pump out Tesla Model S

and Model Y electric vehicles even as sales hit an all-time low? According to the publication, Model X

and Model Y vehicles sold accounted for just a meager 5 percent of sales.

The answer lies in consistency; the Model X may have decreased in sales, but it still provided some profits.

Designing and marketing an all-new Tesla comes with its own set of immense costs

that could outweigh discontinuing an established and reliable model.
