Despite the global crisis that arose as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Tesla deliveried 90,650 units of the Model 3, Model Y, Model S, and Model X globally. In total, 80,050 units corresponded to the Model 3 and Model Y, while the Model S and Model X remained at 10,600 units.
Production, for its part, was more affected due to the closure of the Fremont plant during much of the quarter, remaining at 82,272 units manufactured from April to June. Although this is its worst result since the first quarter of 2019, the truth is that it is not a bad number given the current situation; besides, Tesla has already been able to return to pre-closing levels.
The production of the Model 3 and Model Y reached 75,946 units, while the Model S and Model X had to settle for a total of 6,326 units. Likely, the good numbers obtained are mainly due to the Giga Shanghai factory, which recently started producing the Model 3 Long Range RWD to complement the Model 3 Standard Range Plus RWD.
In general terms, the results obtained by Tesla in this turbulent time have surprised locals and strangers, highlighting the success of its online sales model and its new delivery modalities without direct contact. This strategy has allowed the company to maintain a relatively high delivery rate.
