Tesla Sells 97,000 Vehicles in Q3 For New Record

Tesla says it sold 97,000 vehicles last quarter, mostly Model 3s.


  • Tesla delivers 79,600 Model 3 units in Q3
  • Sales increase 16.2% compared to Q3 2018
  • Q4 sales must surpass 105,000 to meet yearly objective

Tesla had a solid year-over-year growth in Q3 with 97,000 deliveries across the globe. Of the units sold, 79,600 were Model 3 units, while the balance were Tesla Model S and Model X vehicles.

Although this represents an increase of 16.2% over Q3 2018 and 1.9% over the second quarter of 2019. The Tesla Model 3 is mostly responsible for the increase as the Model S and X saw their sales decline by 33% over last year’s numbers.
