Tesla delivered more than 100,000 electric vehicles in 2017

Tesla reported on the supply of electric cars in the fourth quarter and summed up the results of the year. In 2017 the company Ilona Mask shipped over 100,000 cars to customers, which is 33% higher than in 2016.

The Quarter was a success


From October to December, Tesla sent 29,870 cars, setting a new record. Of these, 1,550 vehicles fall to the "budget" Model 3 (this is five times more than in the third quarter). The company is gradually increasing production of a new model - in the last week of 2017, 793 sedans came off the assembly line, and the production rate reached 1,000 pieces a week.

The report for the fourth quarter also included 15,200 Model S and 13,120 Model X, which is also a record figure. Another 2520 Model S and X, as well as 860 Model 3 did not reach their customers, so they will be included in the next quarter.

What's next?

Tesla expects that by the end of the current quarter, the production of Model 3 will reach the level of 2500 cars per week, and by the end of the second quarter of 2018, it will reach 5,000 per week.
