In October 2017, Tesla sold just 2,115 cars. This past October, over 20,000.

It's not the last month of a quarter, so no one should expect sales of 30,000 electric cars like in September, but even in October Tesla is able to achieve a groundbreaking result of growth of 861% year-over-year.

Our estimates stand at over 20,000 Teslas delivered for the month, and each model noted growth.

  • Model 3 – 17,750
  • Model S – 1,350
  • Model X – 1,225
  • Total: 20,325 (up 861%)
