    The big story from the 2020 U.S. Auto OEM sales is Tesla. It starts with the fact there is a new richest person in the world and it's Elon Musk, co-founder of Tesla with an estimated net worth of more than $185 billion USD. Why? During the 2020 MY, Tesla produced 509,737 vehicles of which it delivered 499,550. This is the first time they have produced that many vehicles in any given year globally in its short and illustrious history. Tesla stock has increased from $88.60 on Jan 3, 2020 to $705.67 at the close of the market on Dec. 31, 2020. The company has also surpassed both Audi and VW U.S. sales to become the 13th largest OEM by those same U.S. auto sales in 2020.
