Tesla production and deliveries represented in the first quarter of 2020


Since Tesla’s production and delivery figures for the first quarter of 2020 are known, let’s check the results carefully.

First of all, it was Tesla’s best first quarter of all time, and unfortunately it could have been a historic record, if only COVID-19 had not affected the Chinese market (extended break at Tesla Gigafactory 3) , then the rest of the world.

In short, Tesla sold 88,400 cars (up to 40% year-over-year), while production 102,672 ((up to 33% Year after year). Final figures could vary up to around 0.5%.

“In the first quarter, we produced nearly 103,000 vehicles and delivered approximately 88,400 vehicles. This is our best performance in the first quarter.

Production Deliveries Subject to lease accounting
Model S / X 15,390 12,200 16%
Model 3 / Y 87,282 76,200 5%
Total 102,672 88,400 seven%

Model Y production started in January and deliveries started in March, well ahead of schedule. In addition, our Shanghai plant continued to reach record production levels, despite significant setbacks. “

Tesla Model S / X / 3 / Y deliveries (quarterly) – until the first quarter of 2020

Here’s a broader perspective, which shows how good the first quarter was. We assume that Tesla could exceed 100,000 if the circumstances did not complicate everything.

  • Total: 88,400 ((up to 40% Year after year)

Deliveries by model

  • Model 3 / Y: 76,200 (+ 50%, new record)
  • S / X model: 12,200 (up 1%)

Besides the continued growth of model 3 (supported since March by model Y) to a new record, the S / X model also showed positive signs – sales increased by 1% (first time in 5 quarters).


Production numbers

Q1 2020 was Tesla’s second best quarter and almost a record. If only production did not stop, it would surely be a record.

  • Total: 102,672 ((up to 33% Year after year)

Tesla produced its four models in California (model Y joined the group in January), while model 3 is also produced in China. Since the end of March, the Tesla factory has temporarily suspended production. The Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai, on the other hand, is operating at record levels.


Production by model

  • Model 3 / Y: 87282 (up 38.6%, new record)
  • S / X model: 15,390 (up 8.7%)

Production of the 3 / Y model was at an all time high and we could assume that between 90,000 and 100,000 would be produced in a normal situation.

Interestingly, the S / X model has also improved from year to year, for the first time in several quarters.
