It’s that time once again, folks. Tesla published its quarterly production and deliveries report on Thursday, and the numbers are pretty good. How good? Tesla’s calling it the best first quarter it has ever had.
Specifically, Tesla produced over 100,000 vehicles and delivered around 88,000 of those to customers around the world. The bulk of these are Model 3, but Model Y did start making an appearance toward the end of the quarter. Together they accounted for around 85% of all the cars that the Big T built.
Of course, the much smaller remaining slice of that pie belongs to the aging Model S and Model X platforms, which accounted for around 15,000 units built and just shy of 14% of the vehicles delivered.
It’s probably a good thing that Tesla’s first-quarter production was so high because with so much of its production capacity — vehicles, battery packs and otherwise — is idled due to the coronavirus outbreak, Q2 is going to be a little less rosy-looking on paper.
