San Francisco. Tesla delivered a record 936,172 vehicles in 2021, an increase of 87 percent compared to 499,550 vehicle deliveries by Tesla in 2020. In the fourth quarter, the Elon Musk-run electric car-maker produced more than 305,000 vehicles and achieved deliveries of more than 308,000 vehicles, compared to 241,300 deliveries in the third quarter.

“In 2021, we delivered more than 936,000 vehicles. Thank you to all of our customers, employees, suppliers, shareholders and supporters who helped us achieve a great year,” Tesla said in a statement late Sunday.

Of the deliveries, 11,750 were for the Model S and X, while 296,850 were for the Model 3 and YA.

Both the Model 3 and Y made the most deliveries at 936,172 shipments, compared to 24,964 Model S and X deliveries.

Musk tweeted, “Great job by the Tesla team around the world!”

Tesla said last year that it aims to increase its deliveries by about 50 percent.

Shares of the company rose 7 per cent in December to take it to more than $1 trillion in market valuation.

In the late third quarter, media reports said Musk told employees in a company-wide call that “this is the craziest month of deliveries ever for Tesla.”

The CEO noted that production issues caused by supply chain constraints caused Tesla to delay deliveries and that its service teams had to add parts to vehicles produced earlier in the quarter.

Meanwhile, the electric carmaker has issued a voluntary recall for nearly half a million vehicles to address potential failures in its trunk latching system.

The recall applies to all Model 3 units released between 2017 and 2020, as well as some Model S units. (IANS)
