Tesla announced the delivery and production figures for the third quarter of 2022. The famous electric car manufacturer continues to increase its production and sales volumes recently. The company, of which Elon Musk is the CEO, continues its goal of becoming the top car selling brand in the future.
Tesla continues to set records in the third quarter
Tesla set a new record for itself by delivering 343 thousand vehicles in the third quarter of 2022. The company also broke a new record in terms of production. The electric car brand has managed to produce 365 thousand vehicles in the past 3 months.
The company announced that it produced 346,000 Tesla Model 3 and Model Y in this process. 325,000 of these vehicles reached their owners. On the other hand, Model S and Model X have a total production figure of 18 thousand 672 units. The fact that more than 20 thousand vehicles have been produced but have not yet been delivered to their owners leaves a question mark in their minds, while the company stated that all of these vehicles have been sold and are in shipment.
Although Tesla recently stated that they focused on cost reduction rather than delivery numbers, it managed to break a new production and delivery record with the third quarter. The electric car manufacturer has surpassed its previous record with more than 30 thousand units with the sales of vehicles it has reached.
Although the company broke records, it fell short of expectations for this quarter. For the third quarter of 2022, the electric car manufacturer had targeted between 350 and 370 thousand units of sales. Due to the fact that more than 20 thousand vehicles are in shipment, the US manufacturer could not achieve this target.
Tesla aims to further increase its production and sales figures in the coming years. So much so that Elon Musk claimed that the best-selling car in 2023 would be Model Y. So what do you think about Tesla’s electric cars? You can share your views with us in the comments section.
