Tesla has capped off their biggest year of deliveries in 2021 with its strongest quarterly performance in December, delivering 308,600 cars around the world during the last three months of the year.
At the start of 2022, it looks like the automaker is still pumping out cars at a record pace and demand is only increasing.
A recent drone flyover of the Fremont factory in California shows the grounds overflowing with newly built cars.
Taken on January 17, the footage shows the test track packed with hundreds of Tesla’s flagship vehicles, the Model S and Model X.
Contrary to what some critics might want you to believe, Tesla isn’t just storing newly built cars.
The logistics lot was also packed, where several hundred more can be seen waiting to be loaded onto car carriers and hauled to delivery centers across the US and Canada.
Making the packed lot even more interesting is that this video was taken on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a federal holiday in the US.
This trend of being busy on holidays isn’t something new. Global Equities research analyst Trip Chowdhry visited Fremont on Christmas day and noticed a hub of activity.
What he saw that day made him confident enough to say Q4 “will be massive”, a view that was solidified when Tesla handily beat all consensus estimates when it posted its figures in early January.
