Tesla's vehicle production by quarter - YTD Q1 2020

Tesla Inc.’s most recent quarterly vehicle production volume came to almost 103,000 units. The production level in the first quarter of 2020 was about 33 percent higher than during the first quarter of 2019, when Tesla produced some 77,100 vehicles.

Growth amid crisis

  Since the implementation of an additional assembly line, shareholders have had high hopes that Tesla’s quarterly production would consistently be in the 90,000-unit range, and the carmaker’s 2020 first quarter production volume beat expectations all around. It was anticipated that the coronavirus outbreak in China would affect the productivity of Tesla's Shanghai factory, but Tesla's quarterly output reached almost 103,000 vehicles. Tesla has produced over one million vehicles since 2012.

King of the electric vehicle market

  Between January and December 2019, Tesla produced some 365,300 vehicles. Tesla's stellar 2019 was mainly driven by Model 3 production and sales figures. At about 300,000 units, the Tesla Model 3 was the world’s best-selling plug-in electric vehicle in 2019.

Number of Tesla vehicles produced worldwide from 1st quarter 2016 to 1st quarter 2020
