Tesla posted its Q4 2020 vehicle production and deliveries report on January 2, revealing that it had once again performed in record fashion. The company reported total production of 179,757 vehicles and total deliveries of 180,570 units in Q4. Among this number, Tesla delivered 161,650 Model 3 and Model Y vehicles and 18,920 Model S and Model X vehicles. Additionally, Tesla reached its 500,000 vehicle production goal by manufacturing 509,737 cars in 2020 and delivering 499,550 of them.
Perhaps the biggest development from the Q3 Earnings Call was Tesla’s record quarter, which started the momentum for Q4 as the company attempted to reach its lofty delivery and production goals. Tesla had been forced to close its vehicle production facilities in Fremont, California, and Shanghai, China, during Q1 and Q2, making the goals seem unreasonable. However, Tesla rallied to increase production and keep up with ever-growing demand to reach the goal, making 2020 the biggest year for the automaker yet.
Tesla stock also surged over 700% in 2020, making it one of Wall Street’s biggest winners in the pandemic year. Tesla’s surge in valuation was fueled by continuous developments in battery and EV tech, along with proven growth in the U.S. and international markets. Tesla continues to scale its massive push toward becoming a global force in the automotive sector and will open two new Gigafactories this year: one in Germany and one in Austin, Texas.
Tesla released information for the Q4 2020 Earnings Call on its Investor Relations website:
“PALO ALTO, Calif., January 14, 2021 – Tesla will post its financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2020 after market close on Wednesday, January 27, 2021.
