Tesla delivered a record number of 936172 vehicles in 2021. This shows a Tesla report and represents an increase of 87% compared to the 499,550 vehicle deliveries by this manufacturer in 2020.
Tesla delivered nearly a million vehicles in 2021!
In the last quarter of 2021 alone, this manufacturer managed to make 308,600 cars available. That is more than the 241,300 deliveries in the third quarter. Of those shipments, 11,750 went to the Models S and X. On the other hand, 296,850 went to the Models 3 and Y. Both the Model 3 and Y were involved in most shipments throughout the year, 936,172 shipments versus 24,964 shipments of Model S and X.
Tesla had previously announced that it would increase its deliveries by around 50% every year. However, while it did not hit a million submissions, it still surpassed the annual growth target. In November, an internal memo revealed that Tesla CEO Elon Musk told employees to take time to ensure deliveries by the end of the quarter and focus on cutting costs.
The shortage of chips that can be felt everywhere has led several automakers to hit the brakes with full force. This of course also includes Tesla. However, I remember this manufacturer rewriting their own software last year. This is set to help mitigate the effects of bottlenecks as production at its California facility also temporarily closed in February. By the way, some customers have reported that USB ports have disappeared from vehicles, possibly due to bottlenecks.
Even so, Tesla’s value surpassed $ 1 trillion in October. This happened after the car rental company Hertz added 100,000 Tesla to its fleet. In fact, this company had its most profitable quarter ever. That could change, however, as the results for the final quarter of 2021 have not yet been released.
