With just over two weeks to go until the end of the year, it appears as though Tesla employees in Norway are pulling out all the stops to deliver as many cars as possible.

According to the latest statistics from Norway, a total of 82 Tesla vehicles were registered in the country yesterday, December 13 2020. That smashes the previous record for a Sunday of 21 registrations, which was set all the way back in 2014.

The high number of registrations follows the previous Sunday which also ranked in the top 8 with 14 registrations.

Despite a two month shutdown of the Fremont factory, Tesla is still aiming to reach its annual guidance of 500,000 vehicle deliveries around the world. In a leaked email last week, CEO Elon Musk urged employees to do whatever they can to increase production in the final weeks of the year, indicating the goal may be within reach.

In a separate email last week, employees working on the Model S and X production lines were informed of an 18-day shutdown into 2021, leading to renewed speculation of a design refresh for the flagship sedan and SUV.
