Tesla achieves new record for deliveries in Q1 of 2022

Tesla delivered 310,048 electric cars in the first three months of the year, more than in any previous quarter. Production fell minimally from the fourth quarter of 2021 to 305,407 vehicles. But the second quarter is also having some minor difficulties.

Of the 310,048 deliveries, 295,324 units were accounted for by the Model 3 and Model Y, and 14,724 by the Model S and Model X. The latter two models have not yet been delivered internationally since the refresh.

Tesla produced 291,189 Model 3 and Model Y and 14,218 Model S and Model X in the first three months of the year. This means that there was a large backlog from the fourth quarter, especially for the two smaller model series. It is also important to keep in mind that the important factory in Shanghai was closed for several days in March due to the Corona lockdown there. As a result, production in the first quarter fell a few units short of Q4 2021: 305,840 Teslas were built then, compared to 305,407 vehicles in the opening quarter. Without the lockdown in Shanghai, Tesla would probably have achieved a new record quarter in terms of production.

Nonetheless, Tesla is on track with over 300,000 vehicles built and delivered in Q1. By comparison, Q1 2021 saw only 184,800 deliveries. In addition, expansion work is underway in Shanghai and the two new gigafactories in Austin and Grünheide will also ensure further growth in production and consequently deliveries in the course of the year.
