Tesla plant in Germany

From January to March 2022, Tesla delivered more than 310K vehicles worldwide – and this is a new record. Тhe lion’s share of deliveries falls on the Model 3 and Model Y.

Yesterday Elon Musk’s company reported they delivered 310,048 vehicles to customers, and this number exceeds the result of the same period in 2021 by 1,500 cars. Given the coronavirus-caused components supply issues, we can say that Tesla has coped well with the challenges of the time.

Deliveries of the Tesla Model 3 and Y totaled 295,324 units in the 1st quarter of this year. The rest 14,724 deliveries are larger and more expensive Model S and X.

Last year, the carmaker delivered 936K EVs overall, and this also was a record: plus 87 percent to the total figure of 2020. Tesla’s long-term plan includes an increase in deliveries by 50 percent per year by means of production capacities of new factories in Austin and near Berlin.

The latter opened on March 22. It is Tesla’s first facility in Europe which employs 12,000 people and is planned to produce 500,000 electric cars a year.
