Tesla has released their Q4 2021 production and delivery numbers, and has once again set new records in all areas.

With a strong finish to the year, the automaker was also able to set a new annual delivery record, smashing the previous record set in 2020.

Q4 2021 Production & Deliveries

In a press release this morning, Tesla said it was able to manufacture 305,840 units in the fourth quarter.

Of that, 292,731 were Model 3 and Model Y vehicles, while the Model S and Model X accounted for 13,109 units.

More importantly, Tesla was able to deliver 308,600 cars around the world from October to December.

That absolutely smashes consensus estimates, which ranged from 266,000 to 276,900 units.
