Another Production Record for Tesla in the First Quarter

Tesla is continuing to break its previous production records.

The automotive industry may have been shaken up since the beginning of the pandemic, especially in terms of the supply chain, but all this has not stopped Tesla from breaking a record for vehicle deliveries in the first quarter of 2022.

Indeed, the American automaker released its sales figures for the first portion of the year and with more than 310,000 deliveries between January 1 and March 31 broke its own record, despite slightly lower production than the last quarter of 2021. Last year, the last quarter of the year saw Tesla assemble no less than 305,840 vehicles, slightly more than the 305,407 units assembled since the beginning of the year.

The automaker has definitely increased its production capacity with its U.S., Chinese and, recently, German facilities. Last year in the first quarter of 2021, Tesla assembled 180,338 vehicles and delivered 184,800 vehicles in the same period.

Unsurprisingly, the vast majority of sales are generated by the Model 3/Model Y duo with 291,189 vehicles assembled and 295,324 vehicles delivered year-to-date. On the other hand, the Model S and Model X have been produced at a rate of 14,218 vehicles and 14,724 vehicles delivered, which confirms the significant gap between Tesla’s “affordable” models and those intended for more affluent customers.

And these numbers are likely to increase significantly over the next few months with the start of the Texas plant, not to mention the COVID-19 outbreak at the Chinese plant, which has certainly slowed down the production rate in recent weeks.

As for the Cybertruck pickup, it should also contribute to the brand’s growth in the coming months.
