Tesla Produces 439,701 Cars in Q4/2022 And Delivers 405,278

Record quarter and record year for Tesla, but still below its own expectations and those of analysts. Tesla delivered 405,278 vehicles for the fourth quarter of 2022 and produced 439,701, an increase of 44% of electric cars produced and 31% of electric cars delivered compared to the same quarter last year.

Tesla thus produced exactly 1,369,611 vehicles in 2022 and delivered 1,313,851 of them to customers. This is an increase of 47 percent in vehicles produced and 40 percent in vehicles delivered compared to 2021.


The breakdown by model categories for 2022 was as follows:

Model S/X71,17766,705
Model 3/Y1,298,4341,247,146

Tesla has thus delivered 3,648,578 vehicles since the company was founded.
