Tesla Q2 2022 Production
According to the automaker, their four vehicles factories were able to produce 258,580 cars between March 1 and June 30. Although they don’t break down the figures, that number was boosted by Giga Berlin, which produced a record 1,000 cars in one week during the quarter, and Giga Texas which is now also producing the Model Y Long Range alongside the Standard Range.
Of those cars, the Model 3/Y accounted for 242,169, while the Model S/X made up the remaining 16,411 units.
After a stretch of consecutive record breaking quarters, these figures are down compared to the 305,047 cars built in Q1. They are however up compared to Q2 2021 when 206,421 vehicles were produced at just two factories, Fremont and Giga Shanghai.
