Tesla Global Deliveries Approach 300,000 After 103,000 In 2017
With the fourth quarter results in, we can now take a look at preliminary Tesla sales results for 2017 – another record year for the electric automaker.
According to the official report, fourth quarter Tesla sales were the highest ever:
- Tesla Model S – 15,200
- Tesla Model X – 13,120
- Tesla Model 3 – 1,550
- Total Q4 deliveries: 29,870
Tesla didn’t exceed 30,000 because it was struggling with the Model 3 production ramp-up, but even including delays, overall results are positive. Sales increased every quarter – on average by 34%.
At an average of 1,000 Model 3 a week in the beginning of 2018, and a target of 2,000 before the end of the quarter, Tesla should deliver at least 15,000-20,000 Model 3 during Q1. After including Model S/X into that figure, it becomes clear that growth will be tremendous.
In total, Tesla delivered more than 103,000 electric cars in 2017. We estimate that around 49% went to the U.S.
Nearly 287,000 S/X/3 have been sold (excluding Roadsters) worldwide to with around 160,000 or 56% in U.S.
