Tesla delivered more than 340,000 cars between July and September, a record number for the company.
Tesla , Elon Musk ‘s electric car company, has delivered 343,830 cars between July and September, a record number for the company.
During a statement shared by the company this Sunday, Tesla said it had achieved 42% more shipments compared to the last year and 35% compared to the second quarter.
The figure is one of the most important in the year thanks to the fact that it comes after the abrupt closure of the company’s factories in China due to the country’s zero covid policy.
Tesla reported an increase in production, which reached 365,923 vehicles (+54% year-on-year) in the third quarter, almost 42% more than in the second, but admitted that it is “increasingly difficult to secure the necessary transport capacity” .
The group hopes to overcome these transportation problems with “a more balanced distribution of production between the different regions”, especially with the opening of two additional factories at the beginning of the year, in Berlin and Austin (Texas).
