In the first quarter of 2021, Tesla delivered 184,800 vehicles, breaking its record from the previous quarter and beating analyst consensus forecasts.
During the first quarter of 2021, Tesla announces that it has delivered 184,800 vehicles, exceeding expectations of analysts who expected 7,000 units less. That’s almost 5,000 more registrations than in the last quarter of 2020, which had already established a historic brand.
Several factors explain this success. “We are supported by the warm welcome of Model Y in China and we are moving quickly towards full production capacity ”, said a spokesperson for Tesla, before adding: “The new Model S and Model X were also exceptionally well received, with new equipment installed and tested in the first quarter and we are in the early stages of ramping up production.”.
A title again close to 700 dollars
At the same time, Tesla’s production also increased slightly to reach 180,338 vehicles (up from 179,757 in the fourth quarter of 2020). Once again, the very precise synchronization between production and deliveries will be noted.
In the wake of these announcements, the Tesla title rose 4.43% on Wall Street, to return to close to the $ 700.
In terms of prospects, a doubt remains about the shortage of electronic components and its possible impact on activities. We will also follow with attention the legal soap opera of the brand’s gigafactory in Germany, near Berlin. Even if it will have a measured impact on the volumes of 2021, the first productions must leave the chains this year.
