In 2020, Tesla produced and delivered half a million vehicles, in line with its most recent guidance. Tesla produced 509,737 and delivered 499,550 electric vehicles, slightly below its goal for 500,000 units for the full year.
Not surprisingly, the majority of the delivered cars (442,511) were more affordable Model 3 and Model Y units. Tesla delivered 57,039 Model S and Model X cars in 2020.
Tesla said today that it delivered record 180,570 electric vehicles in the fourth quarter. The electric automaker produced 179,757 vehicles total in the Q4 2020.
In the fourth quarter, Tesla delivered 161,650 Model 3 and Model Y cars and produced 163,660 such vehicles. The automaker also delivered 18,920 Model S and X vehicles and produced 16,097 of them.
Tesla said that the delivery count should be viewed as slightly conservative, as the automaker only count a car as delivered if it is transferred to the customer and all paperwork is correct. Final numbers could vary by up to 0.5% or more.
In addition, Model Y production in Shanghai has begun, with deliveries expected to begin shortly.
