Tesla has reported that it broke both records for production and deliveries during the last quarter of 2021. During Q4 2021, Tesla manufactured “more than 305,000 electric vehicles and delivered over 308,000 electric vehicles.”
The manufacturer revealed its fourth-quarter production and delivery figures on Sunday:
“AUSTIN, Texas, January 2, 2022 – In the fourth quarter, we achieved production of more than 305,000 vehicles and deliveries of over 308,000 vehicles. In 2021, we delivered over 936,000 vehicles.”
Tesla delivered 237,000 cars in the third quarter, a staggering jump over the second quarter. The EV maker has not differentiated between models in the report but it is thought that the main increases in production came from the Model S and Model Y. Deliveries came in far above the Wall Street forecast of 265,000 shipments in quarter four.
These findings also indicate that Tesla’s annualized production rate of over 1.2 million vehicles is unrivaled for creating electric cars.
With Tesla’s entire 2021 year delivery and production numbers now available, we can compare the company’s recent performance against its previous quarters. With a better than expected result on deliveries in the fourth quarter, Tesla finished the year with 30,000 more deliveries than previously predicted.
