In addition to absolutely crushing its 90,000 number from last quarter, the nearly 140,000 delivered this quarter beat Tesla’s existing record of 112,000 deliveries during Q4 of 2019. Furthermore, following the closure of it’s Fremont factory due to restrictions brought on by the coronavirus, production is up from the 82,000 figure seen last quarter.
