10.1.2022 | Tesla delivered close to one million vehicles in 2021
Tesla announced that they have delivered a record of 936,172 vehicles in 2021, representing an 87 precent increase over the 499,550 vehicle deliveries Tesla made in 2020.
The company managed to deliver 308,600 cars in the last quarter of 2021 alone, up from 241,300 deliveries in the third quarter. Of those deliveries, 11,750 were for the Model S and X, while 296,850 were for the Model 3 and Y.
Tesla previously stated that it plans on increasing its deliveries by about 50 percent every year, and although it didn’t hit one million shipments, it has still surpassed its annual growth goal. In November, an internal memo revealed that Tesla CEO Elon Musk told his employees to stop rushing to make deliveries by the end of the quarter and to instead focus on cutting costs, noting that he expected a wave of vehicles from Tesla’s factories in California and China to reach customers in December.
