Tesla's vehicle production by quarter - YTD Q2 2020

Tesla Inc.’s most recent quarterly vehicle production volume came to around 82,000 units. In a difficult business environment, Tesla's production level in the second quarter of 2020 was about 20 percent lower than during the first quarter of the same year.

Growth amid crisis

  It was anticipated that the coronavirus outbreak in China would affect the productivity of Tesla's Shanghai factory, but Tesla's output reached almost 103,000 vehicles in the first quarter. As the virus began to spread to the American continent, work at the U.S. factory in Fremont, California was stopped. The plant's reopening in May was met with criticism but contributed to the over 82,000 units that were produced in the second quarter of 2020. 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 2nd quarter 2020
