At the moment, Tesla launched its supply and manufacturing outcomes, confirming the manufacturing of greater than 145,000 automobiles and the supply of just about 140,000 automobiles.
Tesla remains to be solely breaking down deliveries and manufacturing between Mannequin S/X and Mannequin 3/Y as an alternative of by each automobile program like most different automakers:

The full variety of deliveries is an enormous quarter-to-quarter soar in comparison with the 90,000 automobiles Tesla delivered final quarter.
It’s additionally a brand new all-time supply document for Tesla — beating its This fall 2019 deliveries of 112,000 electrical automobiles.
Manufacturing can be up from 82,000 automobiles final quarter because the shutdown of Fremont manufacturing unit was nonetheless affecting manufacturing capability.
