Tesla Model 3 production up 135% and deliveries 175% since 2019, more Tesla growth stats

Tesla Inc. (TSLA) yesterday released the production and delivery numbers for Q3, 2019 — it is by far the best quarter in the Silicon Valley-based automaker’s entire mass manufacturing history.

Tesla delivered a total of 97,000 Model S, Model 3, and Model X combined in Q3, 2019 vs. 95,200 cars delivered in the 2nd quarter of the current year, that is a +1.8% growth QoQ.

While looking at the production numbers (check detailed table below) — the total production at Tesla’s Fremont factory increased by +10.4% compared to Q2, 2019, this is where the strength lies, Tesla is constantly getting efficient at faster production.

Except for the Tesla Model S/X delivery numbers which saw a -1.4% decline, Tesla delivered more S and X vehicles than it produced, this mainly happened due to the backlog inventory clearance of the S and X.

It is even more interesting to look at the production and delivery numbers from last year as well (see table below), the proliferation of Tesla Model 3 globally has enabled Tesla to achieve some astounding growth figures which wouldn’t have been possible with offering only premium vehicles like the Model S and X.

While the production and delivery has dropped to -41% and -34% for the Model S and X, it has grown by +135% and +175% for the Model 3 repectively for the first 3 quarters of 2019 vs. 2018 — the Model 3 production and deliveries have grown 2x+ this year and we have the full Q4 remaining ahead of the automaker.

Tesla’s Q4, 2019 should be expected even bigger, and should exceed the psychologial barrier of 100k+ deliveries as rapid expansions are taking place in China and Europe.
