Tesla Reports Record Deliveries in Q1

Tesla breaks delivery record again

  • Deliveries exceeded cars built in Q1

  • Automaker expects new Model S, X production to ramp up soon


Telsa has just issued its latest delivery report, and the company set a record in Q1 of 2021, thanks, it says, in part to strong reception of the Model Y in China. Impressively, deliveries climbed higher than vehicle production, though the automaker said that it expects production to start ramping soon.

A total of 184,800 Tesla vehicles were delivered worldwide in the first quarter of the year. That’s up from a Q4 2020 record of 180,570. Of the sales, just 2,020 were either the Model S or Tesla Model X, with 182,780 Model 3 and Model Y vehicles delivered. Tesla doesn’t break out its sales by model, just model line in its latest reports.

Production was just 180,338, but of note, the automaker produced zero Model S and Model X vehicles during the quarter. Tesla announced a slightly refreshed version of its two larger models at the end of January, but clearly, production had already stopped and production of the new versions has not yet started. On the automaker’s website, deliveries for a new Model S Long Range are estimated to be 10-14 weeks, so production should begin shortly. Still, such a long stoppage for a model refresh is unusual for a major automaker.

Tesla also announced that it was quickly progressing to full production capacity at its plant in China, while a factory under construction near Berlin is expected to open this summer to build the Tesla Model Y.
