Tesla's vehicle production by quarter 2019

Between January and December 2019, Tesla produced some 365,300 vehicles, and Tesla Inc.’s most recent quarterly vehicle production volume came to almost 105,000 units. The production level in the fourth quarter of 2019 was about 20 percent higher than during the fourth quarter of 2018, when Tesla produced some 86,555 vehicles.

 Great expectations and sequential growth

  Since the implementation of an additional assembly line, shareholders have had high hopes that Tesla’s quarterly production would consistently be in the 90,000 unit range, but the carmaker’s 2019 first quarter production volume was significantly lower than expected, resulting in a 25.67 U.S. dollar share price slump between April third and April fourth. With second quarter production figures closer to the 90,000 unit threshold, shares rose some eight percent between July first and second. The stock was down four percent in early October 2019, as the company's third quarter results fell short of expectations. The company apparently turned a corner in its 2019 fourth quarter: Tesla was among the best-performing stocks in January 2020. This comes as a result of a record-breaking production quarterly-output of almost 105,000 vehicles.

King of the electric vehicle market

   Tesla's stellar year was mainly driven by Model 3 production and sales figures. Around 87,000 Model 3 units were assembled and some 92,550 such vehicles were delivered between October and December 2019. At about 145,850 units, the Tesla Model 3 was the world’s best-selling plug-in electric vehicle in 2018. With domestic sales of just under 140,000 vehicles, the Model 3 accounted for almost 40 percent of all plug-in electric car sales in the United States. That said, these figures also show how much Tesla depends on the U.S. market.
