The vast majority of Tesla deliveries in Q4, 388,131 units, were its Model 3 and Model Y vehicles, its more affordable mid-range offerings. Tesla reported 17,147 deliveries of its Model S and Model X vehicles.
The period ending Dec. 31, 2022 was marked by challenges for Tesla, including Covid outbreaks in China, which caused the company to temporarily suspend and reduce production at its Shanghai factory.
During the fourth quarter, Tesla also offered steep price cuts and other promotions in the U.S., China and elsewhere in order to spur demand, even though doing so could put pressure on its margins.
