Tesla Soars After Announcing Record Vehicle Deliveries in 2021

Before we get started today, I just want to take a second and say happy new year! 2022 is shaping up to be a record year for technology trends, and I’ll be sure to keep you up to date on all the latest developments. 

Speaking of record years, Tesla just had one of their own. Tesla stock is soaring today following the announcement of its vehicle deliveries for 2021. 

Read below for more on that and everything I have my eye on this week…

  1. Tesla Soars After Announcing Record Vehicle Deliveries in 2021 

Tesla stock is ripping higher today following yesterday’s record vehicle deliveries announcement. 

Tesla delivered 897,000 vehicles for all of 2021 and investors are lining up to buy. Tesla is up almost 13% as I write this right now. 

And things aren’t stopping here, CEO Elon Musk has said he wants to increase the company’s vehicle sales to 20 million annually over the next nine years.

Tesla is set to start production of the Model Y crossover at its new factory in Austin, Texas, this year.

  1. Apple Achieves a $3 Trillion Valuation

Earlier today Apple became the first U.S. company to obtain a $3 trillion market cap valuation. 

Apple shares hit a new record high as well, providing a strong kick off to the first day of trading in 2022.

Apple flourishes outside of the U.S. as well, leading cell phone markets in China and beating out competitors such as Vivo and Xiaomi. 

There’s no doubt that we’ll be seeing plenty of exciting news from Apple in 2022. 

  1. The Year of Space Tourism

One trend that took up plenty of headlines in 2021 was the race toward space tourism. 

Also dubbed the billionaire space race, Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson each took flight to the edge of space.

This finally brings their competing private-sector spacecraft into operation after around two decades of promises.

And 2021 was just the beginning, both billionaires are planning to bring space tourism to more and more people as time passes by. 

  1. Quantum Computing Inches Closer to Commercialization 

Tech headlines of 2021 were dominated by trends like EV, crypto, the metaverse, and more. 

But one emerging technology that largely flew under the radar was quantum computing. 

Between technical milestones, funding records, SPACs, and mergers, quantum computing had quite the year. 

All of this only brings quantum computing closer and closer to commercialization. 

  1. Watch: NASA’s New James Webb Space Telescope Launched Into Orbit

One of the bigger stories in space news recently has been the development of NASA’s new space telescope. 

The James Webb space telescope is our most advanced telescope to date and scientists will now be able to see further into space than they ever could before.

To a bright future,
